Wasn't it also "Apperleys" garage at one time with Mr. Apperley living in Atherton St.?


Just realised that Apperleys was in Rowson St & is now the Suzuki place. Oops!

At one time I think early seventies the Fountain Garage had a restored Consul mark two convertible on show in the window. It was white with a black hood.

Just found this post. Teddy Herron was My late Mums cousin and only relative. I did not know him much only to talk to on the phone at Christmas. When he died I had to go and sort out his funeral etc. I would be very interested to know what happened to his garages. We had to put in some money towards his funeral - he had nothing in the end. We have a few bits and bobs left from the garages. Some Anglia book matches, a sash from the launch of the Consul (i think), and some photos of the Fountain garage with all the workforce in a group in front. Wish I got to know him better when I had the chance.

I would like to know what happened to Herrons garages as I worked at park entrance from 1946 to 1952. At the time George Herron, Teddy Herrons father was the boss. George was a true gentleman in every sense of the word and kept Teddy in check. I cant say the same for Teddy, he was full of self importance and when George died he started to expand the business and bought Fountain garage and another garage almost opposite Park station and from then on things seemed to go downhill.

Hi, I served my time as a mechanic in the 1970s. In Fountain Garage.George Herron would come round every Friday and hand out your wages. I still keep in touch with three mates. Would love to contact more for a reunion. Would love a copy of the Photo as I remember it been taken. So many stories in that garage. Great time. Thanks
