Old scrapyard near Hope Valley
Old scrapyard near Hope Valley
What a rich source of decaying old machines. In this shot alone are old washing machines, fridges, microwaves, JCBs and god alone knows what else, forming an impenetrable maze of dereliction, contamination and neglect. All interwoven with pallets, brambles, and I dare say rodents...

I often see similar places in farmyards, backyards and building sites but this one is in an advanced state and on a large scale.

It probably started as a hobby - "I really need a JCB and dozer to shift something" and lead on to this. I don't expect the owners even 'see it' any more. It must have cost thousands to accumulate and would cost thousands to disperse now.
