Trivia & History

Planned in 1987 as Swanwick services, it was part of Granada's plans to expand Granada Hotel. This one was styled to become particularly grand, with its large building and garden fronting the road, as well as the covered walkway at the entrance.

After Granada decided to leave hotels, this place was sold to Trusthouse Forte and they turned it into a Little ChefHistory/Burger King/Travelodge combination in around 1994. The Burger King here closed here for a time but has since reopened.

The Burger King and toilets are sited in small units between the main facilities. There is a small, unused terrace at the front of the building.

Much of the original car park is now used by the neighbouring business park.

There is a community fire station here too.

Euro Garages operate the Little Chef and Burger King here, and the filling station is operated by MFG.
