Trivia and History[edit]

The bypass of Capel St Mary is an old (1960s) one, with a flat crossroads serving the village.

It was a rare example of a dual-sided Happy Eater built in 1985, which became a pair of Little Chefs. These gained coffee bars in 1994 and Burger Kings in 1996. The northbound side closed in August 2012 and now houses the Turkish restaurant.

The BP filling station included a BP Connect and Wild Bean Café which closed in around October 2014 and then, briefly, a Mace store.

The Starbucks is due to gain a Subway soon.
