I dont no essexpete. I doubt the leyland would be in everyday use. The owners are based only 15mins up the road from me and i didnt even no they had it. Never saw it before untill saturday. They run a quarry and road contracting bussiness. and have quite a few daf and renault 8 wheelers. so the little leyland was probly just a restoration project. The rest of the pictures were also took on saturday. I wasnt goina post these up at all because i reckon most of these lorrys are just kept in storage. And only come out for rallys so on.

Thanks Jimmy I thought thay might be lined up for a gathering.

The oldest trucks in rural East Anglia used to be farmers own on beet and grain haul but those days are gone although I do have a friend that was running a Y reg F7 bulk tipper until recently.

Was working on an Airfield job in 1990s near Lincoln which resulted in us offering for sale thousands of tonnes of planings, which the local farmers were mad for , among the monster tractors that turned up to collect were an amazing selection of ' working ' trucks, some from the sixties . Never had time to take any pics though :(

Im not sure if your talking to me because i dont know what a leyland ergo is. lol :oops: Im Guessing its the green one belonging to bradley quarries. if so then that picture was taken on sat 22nd october 2011. I was passing a local bar and resturant and they were parked up in the carpark. I have a few other pics i took on the same day i'l post them up aswell

I'v also put up a picture of an F7 i saw forsale on the internet a while back. i dont no anything about this lorry but as its in such gud nick i thought it was worth posting up.

Hello cliff. sorry i have no information on the f10. All i can tell you is the pictures were taken in the elk bar and niteclub carpark. I was passing by it and saw everything parked. Its on the main derry to belfast road. in northern ireland. I think that it must have been a meeting point for the Mid ulster vintage truckers or somthing. Hopefully this will be a starting point for your search. Sorry i couldnt be of more help but i will keep an eye out for you and let you know if i find any info.

Thanks James

These are a good watch:

An old Foden still doing it at 3:25 and a great bit of ERF low loader reversing at 5:13
