Pseudo-weekly GoogleEarth Placemark #5 - Coldside Landslide, Edale

On the opposite flank of Mam Tor from the more famous Mam Tor Landslide, the Coldside Landslide will be one of the stops on Monday's Basin Studies Geomorphology Field Trip to Edale. After a long, severe winter we're finally getting out to look at some of the geomorphology on our doorstep. This landslide is not active now, but neither is it a postglacial feature. Rather, the landslide occurred in the mid-Flandrian (i.e., ~5,700 years ago), as discussed here.
