Demolition of garage underway

Work has started to demolish the Titchfield Motor Works building in East Street.

The building was sold earlier in the year to developers who are planning to erect three houses on the former garage site.

Titchfield Motor Works was owned and run by Phil Upshall. Phil’s grandfather started the business before the war but died suddenly in 1946. Phil’s father, Don, had to leave the RAF to take over the reins.
