The filling stations were refurbished in 2008 and 2009.

The services were considered as an alternative to building Warwick services on the M40 and the other options that were considered. It was even suggested that a bridge over the A46 could be built so that M40 traffic doesn't need to make too long a detour.

A Starbucks drive thru opened on the southbound side in August 2015.
