Barwick Road/York Road junction, Wimpy Bar and Crown Motors
30th December 1965. View of Barwick Road at the junction with York Road, off camera,left,(as marked on an OS map for 1974)showing the Wimpy restaurant on the left. In later years it was a branch of Halfords. More recently Netto occupied the unit where Wimpy is visible and was addressed as York Road. It then changed to Farmfoods. The site of Crown motors has seen several changes also, including a Triumph Car & Motorcycle dealership and a period of closure lasting several years. It was then a car accessories shop with part of the building being occupied by a Carphone Warehouse which closed down after only two years. Currently, (2013) the building is disused and boarded up. The 'Barwick Road roundabout' is just out of shot, past the garage to the right of centre.
