Trivia and History
Chiverton Cross was a crossroads where the present, smaller roundabout is. There was a large garage on the corner which is now the used car dealership.
Other facilities arrived after the roundabout was built in the 1980s, replacing three cottages. In 1988 the Chiverton Cross Little Chef opened, later to be joined by a Burger King. In 2008 those closed, and became the Starbucks.
Two petrol stations continue to operate side-by-side. The first was an Esso garage named Chiverton Cross, while the second was branded Total and called Three Burrows. Both came to be operated by MFG, and in 2012 Three Burrows was re-branded Esso, creating the unusual situation where two seemingly identical petrol stations trade side-by-side.
In the same year, Chiverton Cross was removed from Ordnance Survey maps where it had been listed as a full service area.
In January 2018, Cornwall Council granted planning permission to demolish both petrol stations and replace them with one single, larger petrol station. In August 2019, further proposals for a hotel and restaurant development adjacent to the current filling stations was granted. A Rowe's Cornish Bakers store also opened within the adjacent car sales showroom during 2019.
As part of the project to upgrade the A30, by 2024 the Chiverton Cross Roundabout will be closed. Access to the service area will be provided via the new Chiverton junction, approximately half a mile down the B3277. It's not yet known whether the road signs will promote the new entrance, or whether the diversion will impact trade.
