Brian Cox Motor Engineering
Bromley Road, Ellwood, Gloucestershire

The garage is a family business, opened in 1939 by M.J. Cox and built from a number of local materials. It was also the home of Cox's Coaches. At the time of filming it was run by his son Brian, but has since closed due to the recession of the late 2000s.
