Trivia and History

Total petrol station.
The Total garage.

A service area was proposed here in 1989, as phase 1 of plans to develop a business park along the street called Broad Law. At the time the A19 was the main A1 towards Edinburgh.

The first plan showed a Travelodge at the western end of the site, a Little Chef in the middle and a Texaco petrol station in the eastern corner, with Texaco's Star Market convenience store. Space was left for a car showroom to the south.

This layout was approved but never built, probably because Little Chef were about to inherit Seaton Burn, just two miles away.

Another drawing, a few years later, had the forecourt branded 'Heron' with a shop called Snax 24. It eventually opened under the branding Jet, who called it 'Exhibition Service Station'.

In 1997 The Camerons Brewery Company proposed a pub-restaurant called Poachers Pocket here. It wasn't built, and the following year Whitbread proposed a Brewers Fayre and Travel Inn. The Brewers Fayre, named Moor Farm, was a large branch with Charlie Chalk-branded play area. It may have defected to Brewers Fayre's sister name, Brewsters.

Also in 1998 a Burger King drive thru was proposed. This wasn't built, and the following year a McDonald's drive thru was proposed, which was built.

The forecourt became Somerfield, then Texaco, then Total, and is now Co-op Petrol. Whitbread later changed the Brewers Fayre to another of their brands, Beefeater.
