The garage
Corner of Whitepit Lane and Juniper Lane

An early car, picture from village fayre

The new housing

This, the site of Highfield Farm
As village maps will show,
Much later had a garage here,
As many locals know.

Here they mended punctured tyres
And leaking petrol tanks,
And got us through the MOT
For which we give our thanks.

This was Fletcher's garage and was used by many of the village residents for both petrol and car maintenance. In the early days the petrol pumps were operated by the petrol attendant on forecourt duty.
