Babington Hospital Car Boot on a bad day!
Here is a photograph I took at the last Babington Hospital carboot (18th March 2012), as you can see there was just one car. I'm guessing this was due to very heavy rain over the previous day and into that morning.
This hospital has a large Tarmaced car park so it ideal for a Car Boot Sale, No soggy mud to cope with here!

This car boor sale is organised by the Friends of Babington Hospital.
Phone 07976 827942

This car boot does not take place very often, its on one Sunday in March, May, July and September only.
Look out for the large bright yellow sign on the A6 heading out of Belper to Derby.

The is another car boot here on Sunday 16th September 2012.

This car boot is about 8 miles north of Derby.

  1. Hi Andy, Thanks so much for this. We like this car boot as its not too big like Tansley and my boys like it because there always seems to be lots of toys and DVDs at this car boot.
    they dont seem to advertise it very well so good on ya for helping them out with that!

  2. Your photo of that single car made me laugh!
    This car boot is normally good and makes up for the fact that the Belper indoor one was cancelled.
