    Default NCP bungalow - Sussex - July 2017


    A weird little bungalow used by NCP parking, well into the stages of decay.

    History

    Left empty at some point in 2001/2002, this little bungalow seems to have had an admin role in NCP (National Car Parks).
    With lots of blank tickets and financial earning documents left around, it seems this was used as an administration hub for the area.

    There are two NCP booths here too from two different car parks.


    The Explore

    A nice easy local one, although it does back onto someones back garden, so I had to be careful not to be too noisy here.
    It's in a ruined state and didn't have anything too amazing left apart from a couple cars.

    What! No fuseboard shots? That one looks to have two meters and I'm getting over excited.

    Interesting one Gromr.
    Wouldn't it be great if all workplaces had a swimming pool in the countryside?

    So glad someone was here to tell me that's a pool. How cool.

    Pity the Austin Atlantic is in such a mess.

    The house is in such a mess. Must have been used as a canteen for the NCP workers. As DS has identified the Austin Atlantic but the other car looks like a Rover 2000, but I could be wrong.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    The other car is indeed a Rove P6/2000, the Austin Atlantic is a very rare beast indeed.

    What an interesting find Gromr, those cars still appear half decent. A shame to see them just left to the elements.
