    Default Disused Farm Equipment


    I know quite a lot about this site! Before and after it was a farm!
    During WW2 there was no farm here! There was a street of farm houses, only about four or five of them. Sadly some time during the war one of the Fighter planes crashed into the houses and left them all in flames. The crash only killed two people, the pilot and a local postman.

    Soon after the crash the houses were demolished and turned into a haybale storage place. That wasn't there for too long because nothing after that it was used to store farm equipment and farm vehicles! Soon later the technology was out dated and left there to decay!

    Hope you enjoy the pics! ;)

    Yeah, I've visited a couple of times. I just haven't got round to doing a report yet.

    Yes, Uplands was one of the first places I visited. It's a cool place - definitely worth a visit :)

    Interesting pieces of machinery there. See if I can help on one or two items. Picture 2: I think was used for rolling the earth flat and then cut a channel for seedlings. Picture 5: The name Charles Alexander was a bus company in Scotland and this would have been used to rescue any bus that had run out of fuel. Stagecoach bought the company.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Wow! Picture number 5 has quite a story behind it I guess! I guess we'll never know its story. :(
    Thanks for the information anyway! ;)
