Trivia and History
The southbound side was built in the 1950s, and is known as Seven Bridge. The northbound side is newer - 1970s or '80s, and is known as just Calcutt services. In 1988, Roadchef planned to build a restaurant next to each forecourt, but their plans were refused.
In 1990, Blue Boar planned to build a restaurant, shop, tourist information centre and motel beside the existing southbound forecourt, but this plan was refused too.
The northbound side was taken over by Euro Garages in late 2015. Until then it included 'On the Run' branding and a Costa Coffee unit.
The southbound side had been a Gulf filling station operated by Bayford Group. It was closed in 2015, with the site being purchased by BP Express in 2018. They are currently rebuilding the site and it is expected to reopen in Winter 2019.
