    [QUOTE=mookster;358619]This was it - from a few bits of documentation I found in one of the falling down buildings the owner's name was Arthur and it actually was a scrapyard back in the day, presumably abandoned when he died./QUOTE]



    It was abandoned because - like many more of its' ilk under the then new Environmental Laws; it had no separate containment drainage for the oil spillages. Lets hope the Local Council get their act together, clear the site and Bill the Estate or its now owners. Sites like this really damage the Environment and local wild life and it is a pity the Local Authorities do not get their act together over sites like this. They are very good at prosecuting local businesses over the slightest environmental irregularity!

    You seem very sure of that - so much so you post it on nearly every vehicle graveyard thread.

    I really enjoyed that. Seeing the Ambassador reminded me of this...

    And that's a badly contaminated site??
    Damn I'm going to have to show everyone a particular location near me. No dereliction to see as such but some parts of the land are deadly - literally tar pits from constant dumping of oil waste.
    I won't go into mentioning the site at Walker (Tyneside) where there was a tar works. All long gone but people were fainting as they walked along the landscaped park land. Seems the fumes and contamination from byproducts is lethal there. It's so bad that it's leeching a line of contamination into the Tyne. The councils response? This problem has been happening for around 7 years. The council put a mesh fence around it. Yup.
    I see smaller 'dryer' sites like this old yard as easy to fix. It's the massive industrial contamination that's very public which is the real problem.
    (yeah I bit)
    Full of meaty goodness.

    My camera battery died before I got to the house but it was no shame as the house is a derpy mess so only phone pics from in there, but oh my the cars outside!!!
    These are all in the garden to the house & this is just some of what I saw :-
    5 Jags / 5 Mk1 transits, Escort estate & escort van, Hillman avenger, SD1's Vauxhall chevett, Marina, Ambassador, & a rather nice opel.

    Anyway these are the best pics I got before battery died.

    I visited here a month or so ago after getting word of the place from a local Urbex group. Being so into cars / classics and owning one myself I was amazed at what was there! Took my Dad with me as he's had old Escorts, Cortinas and the like, he loved it. I'll do my own report at some point!
