East Sheen Filling Station

East Sheen Filling Station is a petrol service station at 567 Upper Richmond Road, East Sheen, London SW14 in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It dates from about 1926.[1] In 2012 Historic England designated it as a Grade II listed building,[1][2] citing it as "one of the earliest surviving examples of a purpose-built filling station... a pioneering UK instance of an 'American-style' filling station, with canopy and office under a single roof".[2]
