The Pocklington business was started in 1953 and there followed the acquisition of the Renault franchise in 1961. During the 50+ year history there have been premises in various Lincolnshire towns and villages, the Pocklington family involvement ended when Carl Anstice and Michael Loveday purchased the Company.
Today there is one purpose built Renault Main Dealership in a prime position in Lincolnshire providing a high standard of care to a large, loyal Customer base.

The second picture shows the same garage some 15 years later, by then an established Renault Dealership, with large workshop added to the rear, and Renault 4, 8 and 16's on display.
