Abandoned Car
Abandoned Car
Over a quarter of a mile from the nearest rough track, how this car got here is a mystery to me. The ground is much too uneven and bog ridden to be driven over in a normal vehicle.
I think it is (or was) a Triumph 2000.
Update October 2006 - A visitor to the site has contacted me to say that he knows the car, and that it was indeed a Triumph 2000 many many years ago. About 20 years ago it was towed there where it served as a handy little tea hut for people cutting peat in the area. He had a Saturday job there checking the condition of the peat, checking the ground was safe to drive on and occasionally driving the tractors......and sitting in the old Triumph drinking tea.
