I took a trip up to Shelf Stones earlier to the crash site of “Over-Exposed!”, an RB29 Superfortress which crashed on Bleaklow on 3rd November 1948. Whilst running and “proper” photography don’t really mix, I really wanted a few pictures so took these on my phone and tried a bit of tweaking when I got back.

The total route was around 14km from the centre of Glossop. I headed up to Old Glossop and took the route up Lightside and over towards Shelf Stones, with the crash site a few hundred metres away but you could easily miss it (unbelievably). I came back down quite randomly (access land) working my way down to Doctor’s Gate and back to Glossop. It was a great run with fantastic views from Lightside and Doctors Gate, and of course the wreck itself.
