Grounded bodies

Hello all,

I spotted an old van bodied in someone's garden recently and got permission to photograph it but cannot identify it. I though I read somewhere there was a group or society for grounded bodies? or did I dream that?!

If anyone wants to look, my photo is here:

Dave, the Vintage Carriage Trust have a website that lists grounded vehicles. I am at work at the moment, I will try to remember to post it later, or a Google search would probably lead you to it. DW

Hi all,

Sorry if i'm stating the obvious, but that looks to me to be a long wheel based southern region CCT van.

Thanks

This van can be found in the property of a private house next to the 'Concorde Club' on Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh.

See Nick's link above for more details.

As this was on someones property I had obtain permission to photograph it, but it can be seen from the road (Stoneham Lane) if the white gates leading to the house are open.
