Fry's Coaches served the village extremely well until the 31st December 1998. At one time they had 16 buses and six taxis. Sadly Fry's became the last garage to serve petrol and on September 30th 2000, the last pint of petrol was served from the pumps. 
Today Tintagel, which once had five petrol stations,  is left with no petrol stations. 
Another victory for the Supermarkets, another tragic loss for village life.
(Footnote 2004)   John Fry Died Late 2003 & Tony Fry Died January 2004
