Trivia & History


These services were built by Pavilion and then sold off to Forte, who branded them as Happy Eater and then Little Chef (for some period included a Burger King as well). In 2012 the filling station was sold by previous owners TCS and in the process the forecourt was changed from Total to Shell.

The former Pavilion building is now used by a local restaurant.


The Indian restaurant was originally an AJ's and then a Little Chef.

The filling station was formerly branded as Murco and is now operated by Motor Fuel Group.
