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

National Welsh Cross Keys Depot

To be honest I can't remember which garage this was as I was just passing but I think it was Brynmawr with a typical mix of NBC vehicles of the time in the mid-Eighties and the Plaxton bodied Bristol  RELH6L looked particularly inviting The police were here making enquiries and later I saw another officer down the yard at Chepstow and even though he was twice as far away as these two he had a good old go at me for invasion of privacy because he was in the picture. Times have changed and the police these days like to be treated like the rest of the community but then in more rural communities I think some might might not have felt above the law but believed they are the law and had a bit of a chip on their shoulder to those who did not bow down in front of their panda car. I have since been told this was Cross Keys so my heading has been changed.

Looks like Crosskeys depot, which has since closed and has been demolished.
