Bastnäs cargraveyard (S) August 2013
Inside this forest lies 1,000 forgotten cars from the 1950s - a vintage car collector's dream which has been left to rust. The scrapyard was established by two brothers to store cars abandoned by servicemen during the Second World War now lies neglected.
Rusting classic cars including vintage Opels, Fords, Volvos, Buicks, Audis, Saabs and a Sunbeam litter the natural undergrowth.
Hikers have discovered trees growing around bodywork and moss covering seats and steering wheels. The forgotten vintage vehicles are worth an estimated £100,000 in scrap value alone.
'The forest is very dense. You can only see a couple of cars at any one time - the rest disappear into the woods.'
The two Swedish brothers founded the scrap yard in the 1950s to break down vehicles which had been abandoned by American soldiers leaving Europe after the Second World War. They then sold on spare parts for repairs. The brothers had a house each among the forest of broken automobiles.
They continued to trade until the 1980s before they abandoned the site in the 1990s leaving the forest undergrowth to claim the cars.
