Wow, imagine that :cool:

I knew of a place near where I grew up in the 70s/80s that had a Gloucester Meteor in the garden :shock:

Jeremy Clarkson had a Lightning jet in his :)

Interesting Jason - and a scale model Concorde as well by the looks of it.
Hard to find out anything much about the place. The Spit must be a replica but I wonder what the story was with these:

Some nice cars there , I wonder if Andy aka pink shirt Arnold with that stunning 2.0s as he lives closer , I did laugh as it was almost like a double take to see a spitfire just sitting there . Between me and you I think I had one of them moments where your laughing and talking to yourself with nobody around :lol: :lol: .

Jason, the spitfire is fibreglass and the cars are classic Bentleys, I believe the owners is an ex commercial pitot, my neighbour knows him,

Spitfires are pretty much the coolest thing on the planet , we are allowed to loose our shit a wee bit in the presence of such greatness......
