Trivia and History
The site is named after the nearby settlement of Windle. It has been variously known as Caldo services, Windle services or East Lancs services.
After the East Lancs Road was built, some-sort of building (possibly a garage) was provided in the present location of the services.
In around 1970, the Knowsley branch of Little Chef opened here. It closed in 1995 but reopened in 2000, before closing again in around 2005. It became Nabi's, then Swaarg, now Diya. In 2016, the restaurant was going to become an adult store, but a considerable number of objections were received from residents.
The petrol station used to be branded as Esso, it changed to own brand ELSS (East Lancashire Service Station) in 2012 and then to Texaco in 2014. The shop was formerly branded as Costcutter and then Mace.
