Regal Motors Bilston in 1972
Regal are proud to be holders of the Peugeot franchise and look forward to further developing our working partnership with Peugeot Motor Company in the future. Now employing nearly 60 staff, we have re-developed all of the site over the years, in 2000 a purpose built, high quality, Service & Parts Department was completed, fully equipped with specialist facilities for cars, light commercial vehicles and Motorhomes; also catering for tyres, brakes, exhausts, all makes servicing etc as well as M.O.Ts.
The Odyssey pub sign
And in 2003, having acquired the old "Odyssey" Pub next door, the land was re-developed into what is now our Van and Part Exchange Centre. The pub had stood on the site of an even older Victorian pub known as "The Blue Boar", and the demolition had revealed many artefacts from those times, including many of the clay smoking pipes used by local men. But the most rewarding "find" was a large cast iron sign of the name "Bilston". It would almost certainly have been made in one of the local foundries, and has now been set in pride of place at the front of our new building as testament to Bilston’s rich and tumultuous Industrial heritage. Look out for it if you are in the area.
