If I want it I can drag it out of the bramble patch it’s in and take it for restoration.
But.....
I don’t mind a bit of work to rebuild it and can source materials easily. My question is does anyone know what it is? (Apart from a trailer laugh )
The wooden parts seem to be a poor rebuild job once upon a time but the chassis is really good. Leaf sprung single axle, interesting looking braked hubs and good tyres.
Tow hitch has B&B Eng Co cast into it

By the looks of the signwriting, it once belonged to some charvers. tiphat

Very nice whatever, your best bet is to look at the hitch and see if there is a maker’s name or find a maker’s badge/plaque on it. The wheel centres may give some a clue.

What's the hitch arrangement ?

Does it look like this, but without the metal tub nixweiss



If it is, then it's worth a fortune £££s

Dont think it is a brockhouse as it has a different hub arrangement.

I think rice are four bolt wheels. The mystery continues.

Interesting hub cap, never seen one like it before. Almost like the step for a 101.

I believe you're correct. The hitch has likely been changed.

The hub extensions are for lifting it up by ropes.

Here's a pic of a very early Brockhouse (Sankey type) trailer, showing the chassis.

Is yours the same?

Hmm. No, it doesn't look like it.  Maybe a later Sankey?

It’s not a Brockhouse Bt8, going by the hubs it’s Sankey narrow track with a home made body and wings or possibly a 60’s Sanky style Brockhouse chassis, but they are quite rare.

Thanks for all your replies, Folks. Lots of ideas there.  tiphat
The hubs are definitely the same as the one you have pictured, Charles, and the chassis is all box section as in the same picture.
It seems it’s certainly worth rescuing from the bramble patch and the tin worms  eclipsee_gold_cup

Even if you don't want/need it you absolutely have to get it away from there. At the very least you'd probably be £150 up.

My best guess is the half ton military jobby that imeadiately preceded the 3/4 ton Sankey NT.
Hubs look very familiar.
Tow hitch has probably been changed to suit civilian use

Someone in the club will want it, so just grab it anyway.
At worst you can dump it on ebay

I am in need of a good solid trailer with an over-run brake so it’ll be staying with me  Banana
More photos below
It seems from all your comments that it’s a Sankey that’s been chopped up for civilian use. The hitch is made by a company who specialise in trailer and caravan parts.
