Heres another one that hasnt been reported but cant imagine it will be long before the goons find it.
I know this place well & have used this breakers for more than 25yr. It hasnt been abandoned for long, the owner died late last year & everything was subsequently auctioned off, unfortunately I missed the opportunity pre auction so expected empty shelves.


There was however all "the junk" left behind, but this place was a proper old school breakers so some of it is quite interesting.

How old school? well heres a whisky barrel still filled with his stock of car inner tubes!


It appears since my last visit that they had moved into the latest century catering for not only leyland & ford but also "french"


If u need a new set of lights or a wheel trim there is prob stil some here tbh





Even a few old lucas headlights







Or a pair of ancient spoked wheels for I dont know what!









Im sure someone out there is looking for a workshop manual for their Morris Half Ton van too



















A few unsold items still have lot numbers on

Heading back outside



This building was the office







I believe this static was the owners house







Yes this really is a thing (google it)





All in all quite a bit left to rummage through, hope you enjoyed.

Yeah surprised me what didn't sell, u would of thought someone would of just took all the little bits. The barrel is quite desirable too

Oh wow I don’t live to far from here didn’t realise it was closed. Hopefully it doesn’t get trashed that would be awful. Brilliant find
Thanks, I prob shouldn't of have it out, but it will b a matter of weeks before our local goon finds it & sells it to the papers im sure.
Don't know what the plans are but I'm betting it all gets demolished anyway.
That's a fab little place that.
Thanks mate, I did try it the day after the auction but someone was in the yard burning stuff lol
 

Down and beyond

I am just developing the mine by improving access

Cant remember the probe but entirely possible. Its owned by Mrs Grey now I believe but imagine it will be sold off for housing or something

If its anything like the breakers they built an estate on near us the ground will need decontaminating as they used to just let the fluids drain wherever the car was sat at the time.

Most prob, it was old school, no concrete base like they req now
