I Visited a Scrap yard last week in the sunshine, I hadnt been there for 15 or 20 years.

When I was a boy, the place was full of split and oval bugs...

Last time I visited they had a mountain of scrap in the middle of the yard, where they had just pushed everything into a pile.. ThumbDown

I thought it had all gone...

But there is still some cool stuff, particuarly lorry stuff...

Here is a link to some snaps I took last week with my phone..

Does anyone remember the car breakers at Adversane in West Sussex? I’m not sure if this is the one now trading as Charles Muddle Scrap Metal? It was a very extensive yard that had been established, probably in the 40s or 50s. I think the story was that it had stopped operating in the 60s and when the site changed hands in the 80s the new owner began trading from another part of the land. The original scrap yard had by then become completely overgrown and the vehicles in it were pretty much covered in undergrowth. It was great looking around it as you had to really dig though the brambles to see what was there. Some of the stuff was really old - a lot of it was pre-war.

Sadly, I only ever came across one VW – a barn door bus that was really just a shell, it had obviously been completely stripped when the yard was first operating.

Great pics by the way, Julian.

Love the old Foden (main pic). Curves are not too unlike that of the back view of a split window Beetle.Beer

I bought a lot of cars from Adversane, still got a 64 woody mini traveller from there in the corner of my yard!
