This building on Cedars Road displays a fascinating palimpsest of painted signs. It appears to have originally been a livery stable or similar, with signs including "horses bought or sold", "horses and carriages jobbed for any period", "traveller contracts" and "Broughams supplied".

In a later motorised age, these were over-written with signs such as "cars for hire", "weddings - theatres - stations", "repairs" and the name "Cedars Motor Eng'ing Com".

As of 2010 there was a property agent's sign promoting the site as a "development opportunity" so it could soon be gone.
