Trivia and History

Abandoned building.
The abandoned restaurant.

A Little ChefHistory and forecourt opened here in the late 1960s as a brother to North Muskham. It closed in 2008 and became Cafe Amore, which itself closed in 2015 and is now an empty building up for sale.

The filling station was sold by The Carsley Group to Applegreen, who use the heavily potholed restaurant car park as their own.

In November 2018 Applegreen purchased a significant stake of Welcome Break. One of the trade-offs of the purchase was that Cromwell would eventually be re-branded Welcome Break, and adjusted to reflect the rest of their estate.

The service station is named after the adjacent village of Cromwell, but some documents still call it 'Oliver Cromwell service station'!
