A friend at school told me it is being turned into a Sainsbury’s as her Nan has been made manager.

My husband worked there too, Mr Brown and as well as painting cars painted Jack Tordoff’s plane in a hangar at LBA!

Ian Brown.
I used to be a Saab mechanic there, worked there for 19 years, and yes it’s JCT 600 which stands for Jack Crossly Tordoff!

My dad always told me that my Great Grandad and Jack Tordoff’s dad were mates. He would say they went off on trips to collect eggs from Norwood and Fewston. We suspect they were really going to the pub for lunch.

Planning permission is for a Sainsbury’s local and a petrol station.
