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.

User Comments:


This site is now not in any use. Netto changed to Farmfoods and the area where Crown Motors had several changes, I remember at one point it was a Triumph Cars & Motorcycles dealership, then after being closed for several years it was a car accessories shop and section of the building was turned into a Carphone Warehouse, both of which closed down after only 2 years. The building is now disused and boarded up.
