The Kirk Green-without the green!

Taken when the trees were still allowed to have leaves and health and safety was unheard of!
I've been told that this car park next to the tourist centre was known as the "Gravel pit".
Anyone recognise the cars?
I've been informed that the Capri might be Martin Kerr's old 2.8 special edition thing?
And the blue one is a MK2 Escort?

A Ford pedant writes : Could be Martins 2.8 special right enough but the Escort is a MK3 possibly a Ghia or a GL judging by the chrome window surround. The "gravel pit" was a great place to sit in your car and yap to friends or on the CB.
