Looks like a possible bonus for our Stroll Neil, is it anywhere near the proposed route? :)
It is just a couple of miles off the A1M Junction 56 Signposted Barton. You may not be coming North on the A1M if you are heading for the Transporter Bridge, but you will be snaking your way across teesside to head up to Barnard Castle/ Middleton in Teesdale/ High Force and everything really is not too far away. One way of getting up to Barnard Castle and Beyond from Teeside is follow the A66 and head out west. The garage from the other side is just a short hop from the A66.....turn left just before the A66 turns into the A66M on the south side of Darlington.

My favourite local garage, The Two Wrestlers in Newport Pagnell... Located just opposite the Aston Martin Heritage Works... So easy to mistake one for the other :lol:
Two Wrestlers MoT Bay

The garage does not go in for flash MoT bays :lol: Strictly functional and hang the decor... That applies to the entire establishment and the buildings look derelict at first sight... Against that, they do an excellent job and have an enviable local reputation... Basic, down to earth and honest :D

A view of another part of the establishment :D

This garage is never quiet and always has a waiting list. They specialise in older cars and understand hydraulic Citroens :D

That's a great one :D On Facebook, in some of the car groups I subscribe to I see it's often used as a backdrop to show off classic cars...

And why not, it's perfect for it :D

I would guess you are at Beamish there Peter, without looking it up but remembering some of your posts.

I know but I'm not telling - yet.

All I will say at this stage is that the answer can be found in a study of Paggers history ;)

Loving the motorcycle combination outside :D I guess it (and the garage) dates from the mid to late 20s.

A nice big V-twin by the looks of it...
