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

Berresford's of Cheddleton ex-Silver Star Atlantean 1013 MW

I wonder how many of us managed to visit Jim Berresford's depot and rambling bus graveyard at Cheddleton. I was lucky enough to do it twice and even though I'm a bit sentimental and don't like looking at pictures of decaying buses recording their demise for posterity was a different matter and of course it was a chance to do some bus photography. Thankfully the former Silver Star Atlantean has been preserved in it's original colours but like most of the others that finished their days and languished here the former North Western Willowbrook bodied AEC Reliance wasn't so lucky.
