A new, but struggling service area at the A6/A46 junction outside Leicester, including a KFC drive thru. As of 2012, the Extra logo on all the signs has been changed to a round blue sign with 'S' for services on it.
First two hours free for all vehicles, after which cars must pay £10 and HGVs, coaches and caravans must pay £14.
Not to be mixed up with Leicester Forest East and Markfield, Leicester is a new style of service area. It managed to crop up and get planning permission rather unscathed, and it opened on the 24th June 2008.
Since opening the services have lost a number of facilities including Starbucks and Game Grid, with no replacement. In 2011 the local area is being developed with housing which has open access to the services providing hope that the services may develop to also serve the local community. Following the collapse of Extra's parent company Swayfields, these services passed to its creditors Lloyds TSB, who subsequently sold this liability to Deutsche Postbank, who contracted their management to Quadrant Estates as with Derby and Burton, and there are the same plans at these services to sell the current outlets.
