    Strange this I cant seem to find this reported anywhere & its right on a main road and turns out to be quite a nice place.
    No explore planned, I was on my way home from Busfest yesterday & slammed my brakes on seeing this. My lad wanted to stay in the van & we were on a deadline so it really was a rush explore,so not the best pics. (sorry I got camera on sepia a bit too much but didn't have time to keep changing settings lol)
    This was obviously a garage & mot centre attached to a house. Not sure when exactly it fell out of use but the pump is reading 88.9 per/L so we can all have a guess at that one.
    I liked the house, its well trashed but surprisingly a few bits remain in tack. Its got a lot of quirky different level & hidden rooms which was pretty cool.
    Slightly freaky was a dead rat which looked like it had half its head chopped off!

    Interesting report and photographs. I did a company check on the name and all I found was a car dealership in Rugby. But maybe a relative of theirs started a business here and maybe he passed on. A pity you couldn't take any more shots.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    I did the same but couldn't find much. That's pretty much all the pics I got in a 10min visit. Am sure someone will be along with a more conclusive report soon :-)

    The last time fuel was at low a price was between 2006 - 2007

    Yep sounds about right, surprised no one has bought it & turned it into one of those fancy antique shops or something!

    Great shots BG I rather like this place!

    I was here in the summer and did a little research and like you couldn't come up with much info, well none to be exact haha. I had a revisit as I too didn't have much time, and the owner drove by. He asked me to leave for insurance purposes, fair enough, he then asked me if I wanted to buy the pumps I prefer the lovely old skinny Shell ones, plus Id have nowhere to put them!
