The Oxenholme Filling Station lies on the southbound carriageway of the Burton Road.
Kelly’s Directory 1938 showed Alban Richard Mason as proprietor of Oxenholme Garage. Alban was just 23 but sadly died later that year.
Hector Joseph Wood (1903-1981) ran the garage in 1965 along with a taxi business. The pumps were branded Fina and Super Fina.
The following information was contributed by local schoolchildren from St. Marks, Natland to the BBC Domesday Project in 1986:
“The filling station was built in 1910 and is currently owned by Mrs. Pat Dixon who bought it fifteen months ago. Part of the building is used as living accommodation. There are two staff selling Petrofina petrol which is delivered from Preston. The opening times are from 08.00 to 19.00 through the week, 09.00 to 18.00 on Saturdays and 09.00 to 17.00 on Sundays. The station is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. The quietest day is Tuesday, the busiest is Thursday. Holiday traffic also provides a lot of custom. After fuel, cigarettes and oil are most in demand. There are a number of regular customers, mainly from Oxenholme. The current owners have not altered the station, neither have any fires or accidents occurred during their time.
