    Default Old Truck Salvage Yard, London SE.


    Hey all,

    Its been a while since I've posted anything exploring up lately because I've been busy plumping up for Christmas.
    A big thanks to Rez for finding such a great place packed with so much detail.:thumb
    We did a couple of visits on this one because the 1st visit was cut short when we heard some dogs which sounded like they were loose.
    Also just after one visit it seems that some chavs did get in and already broke some headlights on some of the trucks as I noticed the diffrence after in some of my pics.
    Happy New Year,

    Managed nearly 100 pics in the entire set!Not Bad for a heap of old metal:phttp://www.contaminationzone.com/Gallery65.php

    Payno~~

    Old knackered trucks are awesome. This place rocks, I would be happy at night there with a few gelled flashguns :)

    The Morris Oxford still has this number on it, not licenced since 1982

    SFH 2, the number on the Morris Minor, is currently on a Nissan Maxima dating from 2000, which is currently on a SORN.
