    Right next to Costco. I go there frequently. I'm kind of wondering if Tesla did consider placing one in Costco parking lot but Costco wasn't interested? Maybe they can get destination charging, at least (40/80A)

    It's interesting that on Supercharger | Tesla Motors, Reading and Edinburgh are sorted as UK, but the London Superchargers are sorted as England, though stated as the UK.

    Birmingham also sorted as England. All the superchargers opened before the referendum result are sorted as England, wheras those opened afterwards sort as UK.

    Someone at Tesla expecting the result to go the other way?

    Indeed, the one capture of the page on archive.org shows that the first London supercharger titled as "London, England" when originally added to the page.

    The interesting bit is the apparent connection with the Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Centre on the SC information. Is this a new route Tesla is going down for SC siting? Got a Nuffield hospital near you? MW

    I went to see this over the weekend.

    Its right in the middle of green park just after the Ecotricity windmill. Just follow the signs to the Asda pickup point, its right opposite.

    Only one of the chargers is working as far as I can tell.

    and there was a nice black P85 sitting there as well.

    They are all working. I used them twice over the weekend. Fantastic.

    The cones are to stop them from being ICED.

    Shouldn't they just paint the parking spots?

    Btw, is it near this location?
