I have known about the yard for years now but they have recently been cutting back all the vegetation so you can see a lot more. I hope they are not clearing it all, the chap who owns it isnt very approachable but if they start clearing it I may ask if I can take some photos.

But if I can see more then others less scrupulous can aswel!

Spotted a shiny metallic blue Jaguar Mk2 out today, plus a Lotus 7, and a Mk1 Golf pickup.

Drove past a parked cream-coloured Triumph 2000 (or 2500) today. Looked like it had just been washed.

A tidy looking Morris-badged 1100 parked outside Home Bargains in Blackwood this evening. Maybe it was having a last run out before the road salt comes out?

A fruity-sounding TR4 in BRG, minus bumpers and with extra lamps and on Minilites, drove by just now.

I arrived at the little 3 way roundabout in Shoreham yesterday in my A40 truck just as a Triumph Stag and Morris Minor arrived at the other 2 entrances (?).
We all sort of smiled and waved and drive off down our respective exits.

I see it go past quite regularly but am not sure where it lives. There are quite a few oldies lodged around these parts, very little's around at the mo alas.

There've been a few 1980s(ish) lorries driving around in the gloom today, I think there must be an informal local gathering taking place at weekends somewhere. Also spotted a tidy Farina-era Magnette in a driveway.

Hi
Another TV spot https://www.my5.tv/walking-britain-s-lost-railways/season-3/episode-3
about 17:59 in a Green MGA in Bourton on the Water, then a coupe of minutes later a Standard Companion in Stow on the Wold.

I don't think that's bad for cars just being used and seen as incidentals in a documentary programme about something other than cars.

Hi
Difficult to see the size, but the underpinnings make me think a Mini base.
