Webbs Garage

Many people will remember Webbs Garage as a long-standing landmark on the Bath Road, situated between the White Horse Inn and the Essoldo Cinema, but who can tell us more? When was it built? When was it Demolished? There was a story that the building was originally constructed as a hospital to house WW1 casualties. It seems unlikely, but it could be true. If you know anything about the history of the garage, please get in touch.

    My great grandfather William “Bill” Edward Webb definitely owned it, but I’m not sure if he built it. He is listed on the 1939 census as a “motorcycle mechanic, business owner” with his wife Rose assisting in the business. It later passed on to my grandfather Ron and his two brothers Peter and Eric. Ron was a panelbeater/sprayer and Eric and Peter were mechanics. I have a feeling it was sold off and demolished c. 1995 (+/- 2 years).
