Default Togston Garage (Longstaffs), North Broomhill

Hi All,

Does anyone know what was on the site of the former garage site at North Broomhill (now Togston Court).

From 1923 to 1957 some structures appear in the NE corner of the site with, seemingly, a track running to it from Togston Road (B1330).

See attached map from 1923.

Cheers

PS: query buildings in pink - Club in blue, for reference

My Uncle lived in Broomhill and was a driver for Longstaff's in the mid 1930's and so presumably it was a garage then. I can't remember Longstaff's being anywhere else until they moved to Amble Industrial Estate

My fathers uncle, called Ramsey, had buses prior to Longstaff and I believe operated from that site. He died in the early 30's and I presume Longstaff possible took over from then.
