Trivia

The westbound services are also known as Rowley Mile and the eastbound 1000 Guineas. When built, it was called Newmarket Heath.

The collection of facilities were initially developed by Landware Group Holdings. They claimed that this was a response to the lack of services on the M11, although the M11 is some distance away. It may be that they wanted to allow for possible services at Newport, or that they wanted additional traffic from the A45.

The westbound Starbucks and Subway are housed in a former Little ChefHistory which closed in 2007.

The eastbound restaurant is a former Little ChefHistory site and is due to reopen as a Starbucks soon.
