Wellsworth Scrap Yards, also known as Crocks Scrap Yard, is a small scrap yard located on Edward's Branch Line. In the Railway Series, it is located at Wellsworth. Reg is stationed here, and occasionally Trevor and Jem Cole help to move scrap.

The scrap is broken into pieces, loaded into trucks, and Edward pulls them to the Steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Trevor was sent to be scrapped here when his master deemed he was old-fashioned. Thankfully, Edward persuaded the Vicar of Wellsworth to purchase him and saved him from scrap.

It first appeared in the Railway Series book, Edward the Blue Engine.
