A walk over field visit was carried out on the 30th November 2004 on a landslide (Little Hey landslide), which closed the A6024 between Holmfirth and Woodhead Reservoir, West Yorkshire. The landslide was classified as a shallow translational earth flow, 35 metres in length and 7 metres in width. The slide material consisted mainly of weathered mudstone from the Millstone Grit Group. The cause of the slope failure was probably the failure of a drainage culvert immediately behind the location of the landslide, introducing water into already saturated sediments following a wet summer.
