About the memorial: A composite memorial comprising a cairn with several crosses. The irregular cairn has been assembled by walkers over a period of years using large stones and pieces of débris from the crashed aircraft. Components have changed over time and a former inscribed wooden cross appears to have collapsed and broken up, whilst other crosses have been added. In 2018 a wooden cross and a small metal cross with a red poppy at its centre were the most prominent features but the remains of other small wooden crosses, including fragments of the inscription, were discernible within the cairn. Tintwistle Knarr is an area of remote woodland and heather moorland between Tintwistle and Crowden. It lies on the northern valley side of the River Etherow valley, Longdendale, north of Woodhead Pass and accessible only by very steep and arduous paths. Five military aircraft have crashed in this area: if you visit this site, please respect it and those commemorated, and especially do not remove items from the many débris pools. The plotted location is approximate, but the exact national grid reference is SK 03927 99083. Only suitably experienced and equipped fell walkers should visit this remote site. The weather can change rapidly here even in high summer.
