Trivia and History
The Diner 51.
When the new A1(M) was being planned to replace the A1 between Dishforth and Barton, it was clear the road was going to go from having many online services to having none. Several developers competed to have a new service area officially approved, but it was decided that the existing site at Leeming Bar should be signed from the new road instead.
Despite this, Coneygarth was still developed as a truckstop, but it did not enter into a signing agreement to be signed from the new road.
The filling station officially opened on 7 November 2014, accompanied by a Mace branded store. A Subway outlet opened three weeks later.
The cafe here was originally due to open in early 2015. Plans for a cafe were instead submitted to the local authority in summer 2016, and 'Diner 51' opened on 9 January 2017.
In late 2018 the store changed to Londis.
As of 2019 Ordnance Survey maps now mark Coneygarth the same as they mark any regular motorway service area. Some scales mark it alongside Leeming Bar, while others show Leeming Bar as merely a 'motel'.
