    Post Murketts Dealership


    This was a Murketts Vauxhall dealership until it closed down some time in 2009. Iíve visited here before and couldnít get into any of the buildings and the main showroom is still sealed tight. On this occasion I was able to get into the MOT/service area. Inside there was an array of old equipment along with boxed spares.











































    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    Nice to see it looking pretty untouched - especially as it closed in 2009! A very good find and so different - nice one Rubex

    That's a good post, some interesting items such as the Krypton Engine Analyser, I'm surprised they did'nt take it with them. The building was built in 1899, now what was it before it became a auto service shop, you maybe need old maps to look further. It must be a Grade 2 listed building.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    given that its been closed for donkey's and the demand for property in that area is so high (i know im trying to find somewhere) it suprises me that this hasn't been sold for housing yet
