Rob Walker’s Pippbrook Garage, Dorking, Surrey.
"In 1947 Walker bought the Pippbrook Garage on Deepdene Avenue and a collection of workshops opposite Pippbrook Mill, off London Road. Together they would provide the base for the ‘Rob Walker Racing Team’. The garage was much used by local motorists and Walker offered MOTs and servicing, he later established a Ford dealership. The old Elim Church Hall became the team’s main workshop. Mechanics would often test drive race-ready cars along the dual carriageway between the Burford Bridge and Pippbrook. The local police were regular visitors to the workshops – placated with tea and biscuits – when neighbours complained about engine noise."

"Photos of the Prisoner Lotus Seven sports car KAR 120C before it was repainted green and yellow for the series. The car was delivered to Patrick McGoohan by Graham Nearn, the managing director of Caterham Cars (the company which took over production of the marque). At the time Lotus produced the model and so some publicity photos were shot and signed by McGoohan."
