Not to be mixed up with Derby South, these new services opened on the 29 July 2008 and and mirror Leicester services which opened four weeks before. The official name of this service area was Derby with Burton - it seemed that Extra have learnt from all the trouble at Blackburn with Darwen - but it is now known as Derby & Burton. Following the collapse of Extra's parent company Swayfields, the trunk road service area estate passed to its creditor Lloyds TSB who then sold the liability to Deutsche Postbank. Since January 2011, the services have been managed on Deutsche Postbank's behalf by Quadrant Estates who intend to sell the current outlets.
One of the signs for the services had the knife-and-fork symbol upside down. A good job all round.
The early planning referred to it as Willington Roadside Service Area, and had separate buildings for two food units. By 2005, the plans still had an additional diner in a separate building, and space for this can be seen next to the motel.
As of 2014, those outdoor buildings still haven't materialised, but banners outside claimed they were coming. Meanwhile, the Starbucks became a Hamiltons and sits next to a unit which is still unused. The shop is now largely empty.
In April 2017, it was revealed there was a problem with the design of the new building and a new building, compromising of four units to be leased out, was being worked on.
