Shell Cobham Services,

Shop Doctor: In the surgery this month - Shell, Cobham Services, Surrey M25 between junctions nine and 10

 

LOCATION: This site is on the ultra-busy M25 and is easily accessible clockwise and anti-clockwise. The site is part of Cobham Services so benefits from countdown signage on the motorway. Once you come off the motorway, it's easy to find your way to the forecourt as you can see the bright Shell signs.

Shop Doctor: In the surgery this month - Shell Select, Brenzett, Kent

LOCATION: This Shell site is on a roundabout just outside Brenzett on the Romney Marsh. The site is very visible from the roundabout but it's not obvious how you get to it. I had to turn one way and do a U-turn to get in. There used to be a Little Chef adjacent to the forecourt but now it's a business selling sheds.
