Fauld Crater - 13 August 2015

A trip just over the border into Staffordshire, to visit the WW2 site at Fauld Crater near Tutbury. The story of the Fauld Explosion is incredible, and has made a permanent impression on the landscape of the area.

Our thanks to Jenny Throup for the photographs.

A view  near the start of the walk, of Tutbury Castle.

The castle was built by the Ferrers family, the Earls of Derby, shortly after the Norman Conquest. It is perhaps most renowned for being the prison of Mary Queen of Scots on several occasions between 1569 and 1585.
