Trivia and History

BP filling station.
The forecourt in 2009, as a bp site.

When the A689 was realigned to accommodate the new A1(M) in the late 1960s, a garage was built here.

The site was formerly operated by Philip Wilks Ltd. under the BP brand, and they made several attempts to expand the facilities available here. Firstly, there was a plan to re-build the site and add a hotel in 1988, which didn't happen. A hotel was proposed again in 1991, and a restaurant was proposed in 1992 which was renewed in 1996, but neither were built.

During the late 1990s, the sales building was extended to gain its own café. This later became the UK's first Bake & Bite bakery.

Plans for additional facilities continued into the new millennium with a diner being proposed in 2004, but permission was refused. A major site redevelopment was also proposed in 2009, which would have seen the sales building and canopy replaced whilst the land to the east of the forecourt would have been developed into a coffee shop and 'park and share' site. These plans were later amended in 2010 to add a 90-bed hotel to the far east of the proposed site, but the overall plans were later withdrawn and never built. Part of the land was later used to build a veterinary hospital in the mid-2010s.

The forecourt went onto be branded Harvest Energy in the early to mid-2010s, when the site also gained a Mace store. The site later rebranded to Jet.

On Thursday 4 February 2021 at 2:59pm, KSC Worldwide Ltd. handed over the filling station to Certas Energy following the sale of their forecourts to them. Following the takeover, the site was rebranded to Gulf in March 2021, with the store rebranding to Spar.
