Trivia and History
The Adderstone Garage was positioned in the corner of the Great North Road and the B1341. When the road was straightened and moved to the west of the site in the late 1970s, the facilities gained room to expand.
Space was left between the new A1 and Adderstone Garage in case the road needed to be upgraded to dual carriageway. New Esso-branded pumps and a workshop/toilet building were provided.
In 1983, J.W. Davidson & Sons converted the old garage building into a retail shop. They also looked at building a small transport café at the back of the site as well as using the land for a camping and caravan site.
Plans were put forward for Purdy Travel Lodge as well as a 20-seater restaurant and 96-seater transport café in 1990. These later opened at the far north end of the site.
