News - Listed status for two petrol stations (Markham Moor)

Two petrol station canopies are to be given listed building status.

John Minnis, from English Heritage, told the Today programme that the futuristic designs hark back to a time when driving was still considered an adventure.

One, Markham Moor off the A1 is architecturally innovative, he says, using technology that was "cutting-edge" for the 1960s.

The other, on the A6 near Red Hill, is the last surviving forecourt designed for Mobil in the early 1970's.
