Avro Anson LT433 Lyn Cowlyd
This picture taken high on Lyn Cowlyd show the impact point and some of the few bits left of Anson LT433 which crashed during a snowstorm on the
20/2/44 while on a navigation flight from Cark ,Cumbria with the loss of one of the crew of 5, the flat nature of the terrain explains how so many survived this crash
This is one of the engine mounts still on site
Further down the mountain and well off to one side in a boggy area I found a large collection of panel and engine cowl parts buried in the soft ground this is about 300ft away from the impact point and was the work of the recovery crews, nothing seemed to have been touched for years and I have never seen or heard of other part existing on the Mountains except at the crash site so a new rediscovery ?
