This week we've been celebrating those smaller petrol stations that still exist in the county.

Many thanks to Shirley from Bourton on the Water for these photos. Her dad used to have the Garage and Filling Station in Bourton back in the 40's and 50's. Notice the little wooden hut which was the pay office!

Special mention goes also to Keith and Margo who look after the Ruardean petrol station. Keith still serves the petrol and they have customers who pay their fuel bills monthly!

Any other small, community petrol stations you would like to nominate please get in touch. cummings@bbc.co.uk
