An exciting opportunity to be creative and innovative.

Once a grocery shop apparently this building became a local institution from 1932 when John (Jock) Hitchcock founded the J A Hitchcock Motorcycle Shop, later J A Hitchcock and Sons.
Primarily a Triumph dealership the premises has been refered to as a Mecca for British bikers in the heyday of motorbikes from the 1950's onwards.
Now the time is right for someone new to realise their dream here and those with a creative vision will see a variety of options.
A 2004 planning permission granted 'Change of use of part of ground floor from retail together with the erection of a first floor extension to the south west elevation to create 1 No. 2 bedroom cottage, and 1 No. 1 bedroom self contained flat with other external alterations.'
More recently the owners have had drawings done for a slightly different proposal but htis has not been submitted.
Planning correspondence also refers to 1 - 3 Darlington Street providing an alternative view of the site. The existing apartment is Tax Band A and listed as 3 Darlington Street.
