Most of us are already familiar with MOV, Goodyear (AZ) and other USA dessert locations used for the storage and breaking up of aircraft. What other places in the USA and where else in the World are major aircraft storage and breakup sites, where aircraft go to 'die' i.e.:'graveyards'? I think there is at least one in England if I am correct?

There are pictures of crashed/old aircraft in Maxton, NC. Not sure of the code, but there are pictures here from there.

There´s one graveyard in England, but most graveyards are in US cuz most of the jets is Boeings / Lockheed / DC / MD

I thought that the point of the aircraft graveyard was that it should be in a dry place to cut down on oxidation. I can't imagine anywhere in England meeting that requirement.
