I am told it is a Foden.
Here are some more. They are a bit faded and have been taken on a dismal rainy day, which doesn't help.

I'm not sure these would be classed as classic cranes, but here are some photos I took at the weekend of the construction of Hinkley Point C Power Station in Somerset.

I don't think I posted this AEC Militant with another Neil's Crane.

Some factory photos of the RH Neil NS45, 4-1/2 ton crane.
The system is refusing to rotate the first image.

The old 'Parrot Nose' Dodge looks a bit lightweight for a crane carrier in last pic.
