Does anyone remember where the cafe/ coach stop on the way to skegness was? It used to be a long building, painted black and used by lorries and coaches (especially for toilet breaks), about halfway to skegness from nottingham. It used to be popular in the 60's & early 70's, but I've not found it since. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Are you talking about the one that used to be on the A1 near Worksop?
it is on the road from Newark to Lincoln, just near RAF Swinderby there is a large Pub and Restaurant called The Dovecot, it has a white dovecot in the front of it near the road
I used to do the Notts area ending up on the 52 to Lincoln then heading to Norfolk, I cannot seem to remember the one you state. tr typing in Old Transport cafes from Nottingham to Skeg & see what comes up. Good Luck.
Is it something like this?:,50.63,,0,5.59

If not, you could follow the road along all the way on Street View and may recognise something near it.
do you mean the a17 ?

perhaps it was one of the ones at fleet hargate ? (anglia motel)

or further along there is a long bungalow that is now a hand car wash.

Thank you all, but it was definitely on the A52 on the way to skegness, As far as I can remember, when you turned off; the car park and cafe seemed to be lower than the road and in a belt of trees
