The History of Our Local Shops In A Few Hundred Words

If the coronavirus taught us anything, it was just how valuable our local shops 

and businesses are. In this section of our magazine we will try and tell the story of some of them.

This Month:

Founded in 1936 by Jack Midgley, Midgley Motor Cars started as an AJS and Wolseley dealership in Keighley, West Yorkshire. In the mid 70’s, after a few years as a Volkswagen dealer, Jack and the family opened one of the first Toyota dealerships in the country in Silsden.

 In 1978 John, Jack’s eldest son, took over the business and relocated to Skipton. Under John’s leadership, the business held the Austin Rover, Ford and Volkswagen franchises up until 1995 when he made the brave decision to become an independent 4×4 dealer.

 In 2010 John’s son, Will, took over the day to day running of the business, and in February 2011 they became an Isuzu dealer and have since also become a Mitsubishi main dealer.  Which is based in Skipton.

 In 2012 Midgley Motor Cars bought Threshfield Garage and relocated to Grassington, now known as MMC Grassington Garage.  They can service & MOT all makes and models of cars & motorhomes. Plus carry out A/C reconditioning & diagnostics.
