    Red face The Medlers Yard! - January 2016


    During the trip in December I wanted to venture here, see what was about mainly to increase some variety into my portfolio,which consists of "models" and "decay" with some odd animals/landscapes. Didnt really venture here for the "hobby". It was late in the day and after a few minutes down the track, deer approached while some ran off, soon we was seeing deer everywhere, of course some shots was added for my portfolio, but I did take some general arty shots for uploading to here.
    The buses I loved, using a wide angle an even the fisheye proved worthy, especially with those decaying leafs!
    I really loved how peaceful (minus deer) was around here, every so often those tins would bang with the wind against the gate, an you felt really alone. After 20mins though we had to move on plenty more to see, rather than spending way to long documenting decaying vehicles.

    History below!

    According to some sources across the web, the Medler family was really well known, with the owner of the scrap yard dying in 1989, his wife took over the business an soon it went into decay.









































    Cheers for looking! everyone :)

    Hopefully be making the DP meet! I have so many locations I am venturing to with Cunningplan, that on the sunday we should of explored over 15 locations in 2 days! So expect us! :yes: if we are still alive!

    Excellent! Tell me, which one of those beauties had the engine in the cab? Was it a commer? I remember as a kid being sat on one of those as it was the only 'spare' seat. Burnt my bum and as hot as hell in the summer.

    That would be the Leyland FG that had the engine in the cab. Also here you can see the 'kerb view' windows which were a feature of this vehicle. The design meant the interior of the cab was narrow.

    Those bus shots are really good aren't they?
