The High Peak and White Peak areas of Derbyshire have accounted for over three hundred air crashes. In the era before satellite-assisted navigation it was not difficult for aircraft to drift off course from their sea-level aerodromes in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. This meant that when flying at night or through cloud, a seemingly-safe altimeter reading of 2,000 feet too often concealed the fact that the rock-strewn heather of the upper moorlands was actually brushing the machine's belly! There are detailed accounts of the thirty locations where debris is still to be seen, and shorter summaries for the thirty-six sites where no debris remains, but in all cases a proved ten-digit grid reference is given.
