The summer is definitely over – it poured with rain today. The sight of a petrol station on a night like this one must be comforting for drivers. Some now have quite large shops attached to them, like this branch of the Co-op. This is alongside William Perkins Court and I think there must have been a petrol station here from the early days of motoring as it was quite common for hotels to have one close by.
