There is one going at the entry to Amberley near the Canberra already on display. Others I'm not sure of. I'm not aware of a Boneyard here but if you look at Amberley on Google earth you can see all our old Varks in a tight group.
Here is a nice little overview of the day.

I cut my aircraft maintenance teeth on the F model Vark at Mtn Goat and RAF Hooterville....errr Lakenheath. And the Vark will always have a special place in my heart.

For a training sortie at low level without heavy stores and over non-mountainous terrain, it would be in the 10,000 - 12,000 pph range at 540 TAS. That's total, not per engine.
