PICKERING BROOK    

Three exciting new photographs were presented to the Group at the last open day in 2010. These are the only photos of the original Pickering Brook Garage built by the Francais Brothers. They were taken on the official opening day.

Below are two interesting early photos of the shopping centre at Pickering Brook. Is shows the now closed Service Station operating as a "BP" Garage. It also shows on the right-hand side, a "railway crossing warning sign". Unsure of date.
