Trivia and History
Despite being only a mile from Gate on the westbound side, Harbledown is in an entirely different district.
The land to the north of the A2 was divided into small sections, one of which was purchased by a garage in the late 1960s. Despite it being set back from the road, subsequent expansion has brought it very close to the upgraded road.
In 1984 a Little Chef was built here. It closed in 2005 and became Mickey's Diner followed by Fab's Diner, which itself closed and remains derelict to this day. In 2006 there were plans to demolish the building and replace it with a large, two-storey motel.
The motel, positioned next to the road, is accessed from a deceptively stylish driveway at the back.
