I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Berresfords of Cheddleton: Bus Graveyard
Berresford bought mostly second-hand buses but there was the occasion brand new coach aquired too and these included a pair of Albions added in 1969 with Duple Firefly bodywork based on a Burlingham design. Both ended up at the rear of the garage dumped alongside one another and with a former Pennine of Gargrave Leyland Leopard and Diesel Transit for company.
