Established in around 1924, this was originally Longford & Hicks garage who were motor engineers and it had a "Shell kerbside pump".

By 1950 the garage had become T.C.Longford Ltd and during the 1960's T.C.Longford's were also provided a driving school and car hire. It later became an Austin Rover dealership. By the 1980's the building had become dilapidated so the upper part of the building was demolished to allow the building of a new vehicle repair garage and offices.
