Trivia & History
Bangor was built by Pavilion and sold to Forte in 1994 as the company wanted to focus on motorways. Pavilion wanted £750,000 for the services, although it's not thought that they got this. Newark suffered a similar fate.
The building design reflects its history, with a large restaurant, and a separate unit to the side of the main corridor.
In March 2015, Euro Garages gained planning permission to demolish the filling station and and replace the facilities with a BP forecourt, Spar or Sainsbury's Local store and Starbucks on the Go, Subway and Greggs food facilities as well as a Starbucks drive thru across the forecourt. Wales Online has more information on this. This was due to be completed by the end of 2016, but work has not yet commenced on the site. However, in April 2017, a Subway opened in the existing forecourt.
