The aircraft was just to the NW of Dodd heading about 350T - probably paralleling the eastern shore of Bassenthwaite Lake - when this shot was taken.

Dear slowcoach and Calchfaen, Thanks for your help; I'd agree that this looks like the Google Earth image of Skiddaw. I will pass this one on to my colleagues at English Heritage to be reclassified.

I thought since the image reference begins with S it would be from Scotland, but this might an exception. google earth for Skiddaw does seem to match this photo, so I'd agree with Calchfaen.

Gable Gill (on the left) rises above the Thornthwaite Forest in the valley at the foot of the image. Little Man (865m)is topped by cloud towards the right, Skiddaw summit (931m) on the left enjoys a little more cloud.

Not in fact Ben Nevis area but looking northeastwards over Dodd to Carl Side, a southwestern spur of Skiddaw in the Lake District.
