MG Graveyard

This really is turning into quite an incredible year of finding and shooting car graveyards and generally being in the right place at the right time. This is a place my friend who shoots a lot of them with me spotted, on a sales ad on Facebook marketplace no less. A few messages back and forth to the owner then resulted in us getting exclusive access to the place much to our delight.

It wasn't too far away from me so one rainy day after I finished work we headed over there and met up with the lovely guy, a friend of the owner. The garage was an MG specialist and all the cars parked up around two sides of it are former customer cars, part exchanged for newer/better MGs and then left to rot outside. I counted 21 MGs of various kinds, from Midget convertibles through early MGB GTs and later ones with the large plastic bumpers added for sale in the American market, and the rarest of the rare an MGB GT LE - one of a special limited edition of only 420 roadsters made as the very very last production run before the factory closed down in 1980.

The rain stopped just as we arrived too, which was a great stroke of luck as it left perfect overcast conditions to shoot in.

We must be careful about what we pretend to be.

#21! I looooove when plants/organic matter takes up residence on/in man-made objects. It's like Mother Earth saying "this is mine".

Cue Ralphie's little brother, Randy, in "A Christmas Story" on Christmas morning: "Wow a truck! That's mine!! WOW look there! That's mine! A zeppelin!! OH BOY! That's mine!".




Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.
