V1 Flying Bomb site at Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire

Of the 45 V1s launched against Manchester on December 24th 1944, one came down harmlessly in a field to the south of Oswaldtwistle. The farmer’s son was able to point out where he believed the V1 came down and gave me permission to have a look around. He was able to narrow it down to an area of about 75 square metres. As with the Edgworth site, a quick sweep with a metal detector picked up a few signals here and there, but really these could have been anything.
