    Today, finally after 2 previous failed attempts did I find the secret JCB graveyard.

    It was a flying visit and I only managed to cover 1 "Runway" (the site is set on a former RAF base and is the final resting place of thousands of heavy plant machinery, I plan to revisit to find the military bits on the site, today I only managed to document a very sorry Green Godess.

    Nice pics. But there is one thing that baffles me, and that is why some of the old tires still inflated? Amazing! My car and motorcycle tires they loose air just standing still...

    Very good point about the tyres, does seem strange that they are still inflated, looking at the green godess the fronts where the weight is going to be are flat, but the rears still look ok.
