After training as a mechanic and working at Peppers in Leek, Frank Lawson decided it was time to start out on his own. In 1937 Frank and his wife May built and opened Crown Garage, named so due to the coronation of King George VI, right here in Leekbrook. Frank’s son Peter Lawson, joined the firm in 1949.
In the late 1950s, new MOT premises were built next to the original workshop and in the 1960s, Peter’s wife Dulcie came to work at Crown Garage. Frank died in 1985 and ownership passed to Peter and Dulcie. Frank’s grandson David, joined the company in 1980. David and his wife Caroline, took over the running of the garage in 2000 after Peter took retirement.
In 2014 the business had a new state of the art workshop and MOT premises built to cope with modern vehicles and take Crown Garage forward into the future.
David and Caroline’s son Jake is now involved in the company, making him the fourth generation in the family to work at Crown Garage.
