    Reedham Marsh B-17 collision. - location?

    Am currently in Norfolk on holiday, and will be visiting Reedham today.
    Wondered if anyone can tell me where the two bombers came to rest exactly in the marsh, and where the plaque go commemorate the crews resides.

    Where are the preserved parts also?

    Thanks in advance,


    Regards,

    Chris

    A quick google found this.

    Hope you didn't get too wet! I've never looked for the site, and have lived close by for 18 years!

    Alas as I was travelling with others, and in light of the weather, I was unable to make it to the site. However Mr Collis managed to tell me the locations of where both bombers came down.
    He also spoke about the questionable Time Team "investigation" into the wreckage of 42-37963, Pease's plane...

    If you have the location, I will go for a wander! See what I can find.
