Trivia and History
Inside the services.
After the A30 bypass of Victoria was built, a Little Chef and petrol station in the town received a significant drop in trade. To make up for it, a large service area was proposed at the junction with the new road. It was officially opened on 1 July 2014, but the facilities were open from 24 June.
It was originally set to include a Burger King, and is set to feature a Holiday Inn Express and Tourist Information Centre. The Holiday Inn Express is under construction and is due to open in late 2019 yet the tourist information centre has not made an appearance so far.
Woody's opened on 8 July 2016, and it was an external store which sells timber items however this has since closed.
The filling station here is owned by MFG.
