Trash or treasure, white elephant or sought-after collectible? It really all depends on what you are looking for.

The Junkyard Londonderry
Welcome to The Junkyard

The Junkyard in Londonderry is home to a bewildering collection of "stuff". Be prepared to hunt, meander and squeeze your way down the aisles of the outdoor sections and through the shelves and tables inside the sheds and garages. There is a also whole section of building materials way up the back of the property .

So what can you expect to find here? Well, where do I start?

Old trains and buses, tools, books, toys, games, advertising signs, car parts, boats, bikes, kitchen items, furniture, old petrol pumps and more. I think the best advice would be to "expect the unexpected".

Train or artwork?

Timber horse carriages rest alongside old red rattler & graffiti covered train carriages. If you are interested in old petrol pumps you will find plenty of great specimens here - some have already been restored while others are in various states of disrepair.

Looking for a bicycle, scooter or skateboard? What about a screen door? If you answered yes you are in luck!

Browsing the aisles

Collectors of old advertising signs will be in heaven, with plenty of shapes, sizes and slogans to choose from.

You might even stumble across some familiar faces amongst the treasures and bric-a-brac.

Trash or treasure - you decide

You can spend an hour or so just browsing but if you are really on the hunt for something in particular you could spend a whole day here.

We were only there to have a browse but did not come away disappointed or empty-handed. We had to bring Super Mario home with us, and he was a bargain at only five dollars.

Your Comment
A great place for people who love to browse - especially for those who like quirky things, or collect hard to find objects. I'd love looking through all that stuff.
