Long forgotten about barn find. I believe this to be a brewery dray circa 1940's. It was purchased by my late grandfather about 50 years ago to bring hay in off of the fields. It's been dry stored in a barn.
It does show wood worm has tried to have a nibble at it but the dray is absolutely solid being made from English hard wood. The flat bed measures approx 70 inch by 127 inch standing 3ft from the ground. The chassis has a certain amount of carving.
Whoever made this back in the day put lots of time and effort into making it. All the wheels move freely even though the tyres are flat. Other photos are available on request. Please feel free to ask me any questions. Must be seen in person to be appreciated. Easy restoration for someone with a little knowledge.
£650 ovno - Sold

Here for sale I have 3 trailers / dray carts. Two are solid wood and in usable condition, just want the fronts changed, good turntables. The best you get, you won't find carts like this, these are over 70 years old and still solid and original paint, etc... Would look good repainted and lined up. To be sold to a enthusiast. Won't take much to change the fronts. Would suit heavy cob, Shire, Clydesdale. They look like old brewery carts. They're 13ft long and 6ft wide, very good bases for bow tops.
The other green one has no boards and is solid metal and about 15ft long, weigh about 2 ton so could be fixed up or scrapped. The metal one is over 100 years old.
To be sold all together as a job lot, no messers or time wasters. You'er welcome to view them and throw a bid or buy them blind. If I get what I want for them I'll deliver them for free if you're round my area. Get in touch, these carts need to go, they're in my way now and I don't have time to do what I wanted to do with them.
