162-180 Histon Road, Cambridge
Originally a row of inter war terraced, semi and detached houses fronting onto Histon Road these properties were acquired during the 1960’s and 1970’s to accommodate the expanding business of Tyre Service Company (later adopting the name of Tyre Service Cambridge).
By the early 1970’s the premises was able to offer fourteen easy-access car fitting bays, two commercial bays, four exhaust ramps and ample forecourt area. As the trading premises were extended numerous demolitions, developments and improvements were undertaken to form the current premises, involving working closely with and numerous applications to Cambridge City Council.
Today 164-180 Histon Road provides a large fast fit style motor trade workshop site, with staff and customer areas, benefiting from 128ft of road frontage onto one of the main routes out of the City of Cambridge. At 162 Histon Road stands a purpose built 2 storey modern building configured with a showroom office on the ground floor and small office units at the upper level. This building benefits from being able to be used as a clinic and recently has been used as a veterinary practice, a physiotherapist and currently as a chiropodist.
