Trivia and History

Abandoned garage.
The old southbound garage buildings before being demolished.

Both garages have been there since the 1930s. The northbound side was built in the corner of the realigned West Road and the A23 Dale Hill. When the A23 was realigned, the old road became part of the forecourt. It is operated by Tates, who run the used car dealer there.

The southbound one was built right in the middle of the split between the A23 and the B2036 (now A273). The original alignment of these two roads now forms part of the circulatory roads used to access the modern petrol station. The original part of the garage has since closed, and was demolished in 2008 to make way for a re-built petrol station. The remaining forecourt is operated by BP Express.
