Deepings rises from the ashes...

Builders moved in to the old BP filling station site on the riverside at Deeping St James this morning. Offhand, I can't recall what's planned - but next door, I see from the Free Pressthat bike shop supremo Terry Wright is planning to rebuild the parade of shops destroyed last August in the worst fire in Deeping for at least a generation..

I broke news of the blaze with photos within minutes of the fire fighters arrivingHERE and posted updates HERE, HERE and HERE.

When I came to DSJ some 25 years ago, the site next to the BP filling station was Todd's Garage.

Both sites are central to Deeping St James and it's good to see them rising from the ashes.
