    Default Gray's Vehicle Graveyard - August 2016


    The county that just keeps on giving...

    A new discovery made again. This time, something a bit different. An abandoned graveyard of vintage cars, all overgrown and properly abandoned. I am no expert on them, hopefully there's someone with a good bit of knowledge who could identify them. There were around 12 to 15 cars spotted this explore, maybe more but they weren't accessible. I'll properly explore this place again in Winter.

    During the end, I spotted some old shed's, packed with stuff. Then found a few old caravan's and eventually the original owners cottage. All derelict but too overgrown to access. The true definition of abandoned. I'm not sure if any of the cars can or will ever be saved.

    You definitely need to go back in winter when it's less overgrown - I recently found one like this too which is stuffed to the brim with cars but way too overgrown currently, in the depths of winter I'm sure it'll be easier to get around.

    As for the vehicles I'll try and do as many as possible...

    1 - possibly early Ford Transit but not sure.

    2 - Thames Trader

    3 - Austin JU250

    4 - no idea

    5 - Hillman Hunter, rootes shape I think.

    6 - no idea

    7/8 Austin 1800 probably.

    9/10/11 - Bedford CF 2

    12 - possibly a Vanden Plas

    13/14 - Ford Cortina Mk.2

    15 - no idea, maybe a Talbot or a Datsun

    16 - 20 no idea

    21 - Peugeot 104

    And your favourite one is obviously a Land Rover!

    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    5 Indeed a Hunter when in was Roots Group - the very same model after it was the Minx on this square shape. Rear lamp cluster with chrome was absent from the late Minx early Hunter.

    I did think it might have been a Mercedes, but my reasoning was most of the other stuff in the shots was British so it may be another 60s British beast!

    One of the Landies on my drive looks almost as good as that one.

    Great selection of vehicles. Looking forward to your winter visit!

    Thanks for the car names & comments. I'll certainly be back around Janurary.

    I looked on google and realized i've missed a whole third of this site. Most of which are sheds and an old cottage. I will be careful cos there's another cottage watching part of it.
