Markham Moor Little Chef
Markham Moor Little Chef
This unique roadside stop on the southbound A1 was designed by Lincoln architect Sam Scorer, who specialised in this type of concrete hyperbolic paraboloid roof structure. It was constructed in the late 1950s as a petrol station (see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ) and Little Chef converted it in 1989. Sam Scorer died in 2003 and a copy of his obituary can be obtained in the restaurant.
