    Arrow The Quarry, the Foden and the man with a Rifle


    Hi all, what a lovely morning to nearly sh*t oneself!

    I was after an easy explore having had a week from hell at work, I was also after seeing if the old yellow truck I could see on Google would still be there, so I headed North to Newbridge quarry at Pickering.

    Not long into my explore I heard a car draw up round a corner, and at first you think ‘Hmm, security’ then a bloke gets out of it with a rifle over his shoulder. So, the mind goes into overdrive, thinking at best it’s security and he will just tell me to piss off, at worst I might be about to enter a ‘Deliverance’ style experience, the sort which makes it hard to sit down for a while.

    As he is walking up the hill towards me I thought ‘f*ck it, and I walked confidently up to him and said ‘Good morning’, he smiled, rather taken aback and said ‘Is this where the rifle club are meeting today?’ Thanks fook for that! We exchanged pleasantries, and I went on my way, bum intact.

    Anyway, enough of this idle banter, on with the piccies:

    Beast (or an ex Military Foden S90 to be precise):



    Cab in decent nick considering:



    Door to the core:



    Core samples that is…..:



    New word for me today…bunds…..:

    Cheers all

    Second hand you can pick them up for about £30,000 up over depending on specification so I don't think they would have just left them there. They have been moved recently as well as you can see the tyre tracks
