Demolition of tyre centre
Demolition of tyre centre
Continuing my theme of tracking the demolition and building in Bury St. Edmunds, here we see the former tyre centre in Out Risbygate Street going in favour of an extension to St. Peter's House care home.

The site appeared to be designed as a filling station, with a forecourt for the pumps, but it never operated in this form. As far as I remember it has only ever sold tyres or used cars. It had a large shed with glass showroom/office at its front, in a sea of concrete.
