Trivia and Design

Subway.
Subway in the one of the former garage buildings.

The road through the service area is the old alignment of the A30, cut off by the new road at the end. There used to be an exit to the A30 at the far western end of the car park, which was closed when the dual carriageway was extended.

The service area started out as a couple of garages and a small petrol station in the mid-1950s.

In 1995, planning permission was granted to build a restaurant and hotel here but this never happened.

One of the garage buildings became Antheas Cafe in 1997, and is now the Subway.

This was a BP filling station site, which was formerly operated by Chartman Retail.

In June 2019, plans were submitted to build two drive-thru restaurants on the current HGV parking area between the Subway store and the existing filling station. These plans were refused due to concerns about the additional traffic using the junction. Highways England added that they were hoping to upgrade the junction in the long term.

In February 2020, MFG were granted planning permission to demolish the existing shop building and build a larger one. The works will also include the installation of 4 electric vehicle charging points and new parking bays located around the building.
