They didnt have to go far as the other buildings in the background are part of the police station.
Love it, I wonder if any of them survive, can’t say I’ve ever seen a Police Mini Traveller.

The track stopped short of the top so we had to walk the last 100 metres or so but still pretty high. I don’t’ recall any problem with the trip even though the Moke was standard and on road tyres. All good fun!

This photo is borrowed from one of the other topics, but is interesting because this Moke is one of the ex-Denbighshire Police Mokes. There were five in the series HCA516E to HCA520E plus a further seven in the series KCA214F to KCA220F It is nice to see it painted in its original colour and it still survives but is now painted purple!

Love this photo, growing up living in Caernarfon I well remember the White Mokes the local Police had. Interesting to see where this one got to especially as in 1976 I crossed from France via Andorra into Spain. Sadly not in a Moke but in a Toyota Celica ST on our way to Estepona. A 5k mile road trip in 4 weeks, I’m glad it wasn’t in a Moke but envious of your trip.
