The crash site of aircraft X3941, a British Vickers Wellington Mark III bomber, which crashed on 30th January 1943. The aircraft belonged to Number 27 Operational Training Unit. It was on a night-time exercise from Church Broughton when the crash occurred. The aircraft was operating over hilly terrain around Beeley Moor, it struck a line of trees near Gladwins Mark and crashed into a field. Two crewmen were killed and three were injured in the accident. It is thought that bad weather may have played a part in the crash.

Please note that should any wreckage or other remains of the crash be located, a licence to excavate or recover material from a military aircraft crash site must first be obtained from the Ministry of Defence before any such investigations can take place.
