Trivia and History[edit]

The northbound side is also home to an ambulance station. There is a third service area, with a McDonald's and Shell, signed as services but without any advance signage.

These facilities once sat around a roundabout, with an AJ's on the north side and the Little ChefHistory on the south side. The latter opened in 1987 alongside a Little Chef Lodge and a petrol station.

In 1998, the AJ's became a second Little Chef, while the original gained a Burger King. In 2002, the south side Little Chef became a Little Chef Choices, gaining a Harry Ramsden's and Caffe Ritazza. These were removed, and the Burger King was then replaced by Coffee Tempo!.

At one point, the northbound Little Chef gained a takeaway service, but in 2012 it was closed as part of nationwide cutbacks. The filling station supplier changed from Total to Esso around this time.

In 2013 a Burger King was reintroduced to the southbound Little Chef.

The southbound petrol station was Esso's last trunk-road site before it was sold to MRH in 2015. The shop was damaged by a severe fire in April 2017, thought to have started with an electrical fault in a refrigerator unit. The filling station was rebuilt during 2017 and early 2018 and reopened in May 2018. The southbound filling station is now operated by MFG following the merger of MFG and MRH.

The former southbound Little Chef closed in 2017 following the takeover by Euro Garages.
