Good Evening All

A mixed bag tonight, the first one is a typical village pub.

The writing on the wall of the middle building says CW Marston, Beer, Wine And Spirits.

Might be somewhere in Cork [CTC]?

Sparse clues. The "grit" bin says CTC, presumably C.... Town Council . Have scoured them but there are so many. Also Bass and Guinness were widely distributed. At a guess somewhere in Cotswolds; hilly places like Naunton along the Windrush river?

I thought it was quite unusual in the fact that it also doubled as a petrol station.

Thought Marstons was a Midllands beer.

Looks like a petrol pump outside the door. Wonder how much it was for a gallon in those days. Think I can remember it At one shilling and 10 pence a gallon.

I think that you could be in the right country.

The sign under the window behind the pump has the first part obscured but the large writing at the bottom ends "rish". I cannot make out what is written above that.

Middle of the Road, sorry to stifle your creative reasoning old pal ;o} but I have just used a magnifying glass and the sign says Orange (C)rush .

Marstons was a Burton on Trent brewery so suspect this is somewhere in Staffordshire south Derbyshire area

Not it but at the correct angle. Now just noticed the roof on the far right of the photo there is what looks like a skylight open. Scotland is well known for its vast amounts of skylights on roofs.
