    Post Churchdown House and Car Graveyard


    This house belonged to an elderly gentleman who had no family to leave his property to after he passed away over 10 years ago. Everything has remained untouched since. The house itself is full of his old belongings, car parts, and general clutter. It seemed the owner was very interested in sailing given the amount of books on his bookshelf dedicated to the subject, and the two old boats that lay in the back garden, he was also an avid car collector, and seemed to like Jaguars in particular.

















































    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    Very nice Rubex. I agree, the cars are great.

    My first job was with a classic Jaguar spares company. I can't remember any of the car types though. Oops.

    A very well known collector of terminally ill MOT failures and a very irresponsible 'dumper' in his lifetime - even if it was his own land. The site is well contaminated now, so will no doubt cost the local rate payers a fortune to eventually clear up!
