This pair of urban explorers stumbled upon this car graveyard filled with hundreds of classic motors that time forgot.
Matt, 43, a full-time YouTuber from Sheffield, and Andy, 56, also a YouTuber from Doncaster, traveled to the secret Suffolk location.
They originally wanted to explore an abandoned house, but ended up coming across a huge barn and a field full of classic cars.
The couple documented their incredible finds on their YouTube channel, FindersBeepers, where they showcased the goldmine of old classic cars that have been abandoned and salvaged from the earth.
Matt said: “After doing a lot of Google Earth research Andy came across the typical signs of an abandoned house only to find a huge barn and a field full of classic cars.

“We were desperate to document them before they were lost to decay.
“The nostalgia around old cars is huge and our viewers loved that seeing some of the classics brought back strong childhood memories. It’s one of the main reasons we make our videos.
“I was a big fan of the Jowett Javelin, however, Andy preferred the Ford Prefect. There are hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of cars in this place, even if it was for parts on some of them.
“There were about 100 cars through the property.
“It’s hard to know the history of all the abandoned places we go to. We mostly searched as we went, but on this occasion there was very little to discover.
Last summer, an urban explorer discovered a mysterious collection of classic cars just thirty miles from Edinburgh, Scotland – where a treasure trove of cars from sixty years ago were left to rust.
British classics like Jaguars and Austins made up the majority of vehicles here, which may hide some rare and hidden gems. The classic engines are believed to have been collected by an unknown Jaguar enthusiast.
Some of these vehicles dated from the sixties and were in a terrible state. However, at the time, engines were highly sought after.

Jaguars were very fashionable at the time, seen gracing the tracks of the infamous Le Mans race, and costing up to £45,000 in today’s monetary value.
In 2016, a mountain of abandoned cars from the 1970s were found 200 feet underground in an abandoned slate mine.
Up to 100 cars in various states have been discovered cascading inside the cave in Ceredigion, Wales.
Urban explorers made a treacherous journey through dark, dangerous conditions and were stunned to find a car graveyard at the mine, which closed in 1960.
Computer engineer Gregory Rivolet, 31, spent four hours exploring this last unlikely abode for abandoned vehicles.
“It was very dangerous because the mine is really unstable. Pieces of slate were falling from above our heads,” he said.
“We had to use a rope to get down to the correct level of the mine, the descent was about sixty-five feet deep, it didn’t seem very safe at all.”
