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.
