Rose Lane Garage

Post  Pilgrim on Sat 14 Oct 2017, 11:30 pm

The 31/10/42 bombing raid damaged the south section of Rose Lane. Businesses affected were largely concerned with coach building and the motor industry including Philpot's Rose Lane Garage which was featured in A Canterbury Tale.



Many of the bombed firms continued trading in truncated or damaged premises supplemented with Nissen huts. Some of the "temporary structures" were used until the middle of the sixties.

In 1943 Alison Smith (Sheila Sim) arrives to see her caravan.



Next to Rose Lane Garage was Marlowe Motors where Alison initially meets Arthur (Parry Jones).

On Rose Lane the first BLACK arrow points to a low brick building which before being damaged by bombs had two levels. The structure was owned by Williams & Son coach builders which was used in A Canterbury Tale as the front entrance where Alison's caravan was being stored. The majority of the interior scenes were filmed in Denham Studios. The second BLACK arrow points to a white Regency period building on Gravel Walk.



The RED arrows show a car and a lorry which are seen again when Mr Portal (Henry Maltby) walks to meet Alison and exits onto Rose Lane where two pedestrians are seen. However, Mr Portal isn't shown walking through the already open front double doors, but is immediately seen inside greeting Alison.

The BLACK arrows point at the two buildings from Rose Lane.



Note the distinct styling of the front double doors of Williams & Son coach builders.

Today Tesco Metro entrance is on Gravel Walk and the store extends down Rose Lane.

Colpeper (Eric Portman) is seen standing at the front entrance looking for Alison.



The distant building with three levels seen behind Colpeper is on the corner of Saint Margaret's Street and Hawk's Lane.
