About Us – Our history and the Team

There has been a garage here for over 100 years now, we believe the original garage was started in 1915. We have some wonderful photographs of the garage from the 1930’s which are currently on display in our reception area – and even have clients who recognise family members in the pictures!

When Alex moved into the property he had to decommission two very old petrol pumps and the underground tanks that served them. We wish we’d kept them as they would be very valuable collector’s items today.


Alex Dunlop

Alex started as an apprentice in a small garage called Short Brothers, cycling to Penn daily. Once he was fully qualified with some experience under his belt he started his own business specialising in Jaguars working from his parents’ house.

From 1983 he worked from a few locations around Beaconsfield and High Wycombe until setting up on the land that is now Beaconsfield Services. When the motorway services plans were being realised in 1998 he moved to the old town of Beaconsfield and took over The Old Town Service Station.

Having grown up in Beaconsfield, Alex is heavily involved in the community raising money for charity through the garage and other charitable organisations and is a Town Councillor in Beaconsfield.

Cars and scooters have been Alex’s passion for years. He owns a lovely Vespa and an old ’64 Beetle and is trying to decide on a new colour scheme for the baby blue beauty.


Caryn Dunlop

You may meet Alex’s wife, Caryn, in the office but she generally sits very much in the background, crunching numbers and coming up with new ideas.

Caryn has been a car and motorbike enthusiast from an early age, making a perfect match for Alex. They have dreams of a house with a generous garage for a yet to be realised collection of cars, motorbikes (Caryn) and scooters (Alex)
