    Default Dave Norris Motors


    Its Christmas day & Im out on the mountain bike eating out of date chicken sandwiches, & quite frankly Im having a great time Then on one of the only short stretched of road I touch all day I spot this place.

    I seem to be a magnet for old filling stations & this is pretty much the same as the last 2 I posted but thought it worth a share.
    This is completely open to all, but surprisingly has a load of stuff in there to the extent its hard to walk across the old workshop.

    All I can find out is that it was / is owned by a Dave Norris who has applied for planning on the site for housing.

    A really relaxed explore around here but unfortunately only had the dog & bone for pics so apologies in advance for them.

    Aah yes. I was wondering if you'd post a report BikinGlynn. I think the aviation company mentioned in documents here is associated with Cranfield Airport, not too far away near Bedford. Nice to see this place again.

    Looking at the head lights and the age decayed building I'd say it looks like someone was breaking down some stolen Vauxhall cars (Zafira. The dog and bone you used has a great focus.
