DamonOpened in January 1976. The parts store for the body shop was initially located at Grays garage until relocated to a warehouse built at one end of new Crawley garage adjacent to the works which opened on 21st November 1982. The Crawley works premises became Gatwick Engineering Ltd. from 7th September 1986 although still under NBC ownership. Gatwick Enineering inherited a stores facility at Hertford Garage. There were also five service vehicles at Crawley, 41F, 47F, 63F, 67F and 68F plus 57F at Hertford amd 66F at Guildford. I believe gearbox overhauls were done at Guildford. The business and works was later sold to Frontsource who bought most of the other bus works around the country. Believed Kaputt by 1993 when Frontsource went bust?...and moved into property?
