    Default The truck stop..


    If you like trucks and land rovers then you will like this place a large graveyard full off them.i counted nine land rovers ranging from the series models to defenders and even a 101.lots of scammells amd other makes and some tractors.the trucks were mainly recovery ones.there is a derelict house and strangely enough me and man gone wrong decided to not do it,one reason time was getting on and we would lose the light and secondly there is a large gypsy site opposite it.we were not sure if the land here they were using.then at the rear of the site we spotted a load of horses in an open barn so that made our mind up.it was the trucks we wanted to see.we got our shots and cleared off quickly.thanks to MD for the heads up on this one



























    Not sure what this little thing was but I liked it..it was a small thing and reminded me off one off them little trucks you see buzzing around airports carrying suitcases to and fro.







































































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    That's a nice collection of heavy metal. Some of those vehicles could be restored. Most of them look to be early sixties, I did a registration check on a few. FVL322X turns out to be registered in 1995 and describes it as a yellow ambulance.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    A nice collection there.The tractor in picture 3 is a bit of a rarity made by David Brown and a bit odd looking

    It still has the ambulance symbols on it.a lot of these 101's were used for ambulances

    Love the way some of the vehicles have sunk into the ground with only half the wheels showing makes great shots! Best time of year to see these little gems with the bare shrubs growing through them, love seeing nature reclaiming old metal:)

    Cheers Mikey really enjoyed lookin at your report!
