Was it a Homebase garden centre? If so, I know where you mean as I pass it every time I drive to the Resort
Yeah it is I think, haven't been there myself but there's a new Aldi near it now I think has been there for about a year almost with a pub/restaurant next to it, if so then yeah, same place there!
So you're on the A52 link-road between the two main roundabouts on the outskirts of Ashbourne then. The first [coming from Derby] passes the retail park with Homebase on your right, then you then pass the pub, Travelodge & Aldi on the left, before doing a left at the next roundabout to head towards Alton Towers.
Yeah that's it! Couldn't remember the road name aha, yeah that's where I saw the 2 lorries carrying a cargo that was covered. This was last Tuesday as I had a course to take for my apprenticeship for machining, once coming home towards Derby, that's when I saw them.. it really could be anything, however with the timing and route they were taking in their convoy, it does raise suspicions! Especially now that the ride is testing, this is getting very exciting!
EDIT: just looked on google maps, the pub is the Stepping Stones, for anyone else who knows the route.
