    Default Jag Graveyard... no not that one


    This place is crazy, mainly because is so close to me & I never noticed it!
    The house sits on a main road & was at the entrance to a scrapyard / industrial estate which has recently been moved.
    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 see someone's gone on a window breaking spree :( visited this place a couple of times last summer, it's really cool. Was wondering whether it was still about as I went past a couple of months back and the previously see through front mesh gate had been totally covered over.

    As mentioned I cant believe I missed it until now as Im only 10 miles from here. TBH there is not much vandalism considering how easy it is to get in.
    U are right though cant see any vehicles from the road which I suppose helps.
    Did u do a post from your visit? I cant recall seeing it before?

    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.

    Fascinating stuff that. I'll bet you a sausage roll that there's far more to be seen at that location.
    The vehicles - made of rot metal due to how industry was back then. I'm shuddering thinking back to how badly the things were made!
    Full of meaty goodness.

    I wouldnt say badly myself, I think technology has just improved at an incredible rate. (most cars are hot zink sprayed for a start now). My daily driver is 20 yr old btw .... but then it is German ;-)

    Great to see the old cars. I think picture 3 is an old Austin Ambassador or is it a Princess?
