It most certainly is, you can zoom in on that and see it quite clearly. I have no idea who or where they are from but I'm sure the Northumberland branch will take up that challenge!! :-D

Sorry Neil you're just too slow, you've had ten minutes and your time is up. :-D :-D
Here is the info on Pace : https://certasenergy.co.uk/my-business/ ... ions/pace/

Half day closing at the Northumberland Branch but I can provide a link in the "too much information" category to 370 images of Pace Filling Stations by Chris Barker who vies with EYbusman for domination of Flickr with images of petrol stations.

Chris Barker does have 4 pics of Catworth Garage in his album of Pace Service stations, Catworth used to be "UK" Petroleum Brand, but "UK" Fuel Stations are being rebranded as Pace.
