Description Change this

The Structure was built in 1959 and designed by British Architect Samuel Scorer. It sits on the sound bound carriage way of the A1 at a place called Markham Moor, near Retford. Originally conceived as petrol station, thirty years later the original shell roof was built under and now occupies a Little Chef restaurant. Scorer could be described as a pioneer in the field of Hyperbolic Paraboloid structures, sited by many of his peers as ‘a figure of national importance’ yet despite this, it’s hard to find much reference of his work anywhere, he remains relatively unknown.
