Roy Claridge's Motorcycle Shop

Roy Claridge's Motorcycle Shop

Roy Claridge’s motorcycle shop was located at 6 North Parade, which was one of several parades of shops as one travelled along the Barnet By-pass. This particular parade was near the Birchwood roundabout and the turnings into Wellfield Road & Lemsford Road. It later became a Fiat dealership before all the shops were knocked down prior to the construction of the A1(M) Tunnel. Roy Claridge lived in a detached house, No. 47 St Albans Road East, which backed onto the Recreation Ground.
