As can be seen from the pictures, these were not taken recently ! Having a poke around in January I fianlly found this site which I've been looking for, for ages...

Unfortunately the vandals have been in too.

Someone was recently caught with a gas axe removing bits too.......

Please forgive the picture quality -- i only had my little LX1 with me.....

anyway - here's a few...

a few more from this site -- I think it was a storage/breakers yard originally -- the trucks are packed in very close together --- too close to walk between in some cases.

There's some lovely old vehicle stuff turning up on here lately ! these are great and mystifying too.......
I know there is often a good trade to be had in commercial breaking but to be honest most of the stuff that has been in these recent posts and threads on here is too old now to be of any use to anyone running a haulage fleet......... A lot of stuff on this post such as the Leylands and Dafs ain't of no interest to the vintage fellas either so why they haven't been lamped up especially when scrap was sky high last year is a mystery.........
.......the older stuff I guess maybe the owners are just sitting on it waiting for someone with a pocketfull of money and a strong desire to restore an old truck to come along.........:lol:
Hey keep 'em coming!!! the more publicity old yards like this get hopefully encourrages more folk to rescue stuff !:)
