August 31st – There has been some discussion in the Stonnall History Group on Facebook about the old garage that used to be on the corner of Main Street and Cartersfield Lane. It was an old fashioned affair, and I don’t think it was self service but relied on an attendant to fill your car for you. It lasted until the late eighties or early nineties I think, and I can remember buying sweets there when out riding as a kid – it was the only such place open on a Sunday afternoon in those days. Jayne Preston remembered her relatives, the Lawless family owning it back then. the main building is the cream house with the fantastic barley twist chimneys, now fully converted back to a hose. The forecourt was to the left, where there now stands a new house built in the space.
