Goodness, I could swear I smelt damp car interior smell when viewing the photos.

The Series 1 Land Rover would still fetch decent money even in hedge condition!!

We have passed the Leyland Martian before.

...


I'm sure on one episode of Shed & Buried with Henry Cole, he visited the place that had the S1 Landy dumped outside the entrance. There can't be two like that.

I cannot see a Series 1 Landrover . The petrol tank on a Series 1 was under the seat and you had to lift the seat to put petrol in . Head lights in the wings are late Series 2A or Series 3 . Door hinges on a series 1 are very small , compared to later ones .

Just had another look , the one in the hedge could be Series 1 . The top of the doors used to lift off .
