just google witchers lewes, and search using 'books' and you get directory entries stating confirming it was in Western Rd as stated here. You will also see what the name changed to.

thanks all. 'Kellys' 1930 tells me that it was called Pelham Garage and the proprietors were W E & M Witcher, they had premises in Western Road and High st. 1911 census tells me there were Witchers living in Western road.
