Trivia and History

Opened by Extra 2008
Sold to Quadrant Estates 2011

Planning and Opening

The early planning documents for a service area here showed separate buildings for two food units alongside an amenity building, pub, filling station, hotel and parking areas for all vehicles. By 2005, Extra's parent company Swayfields had scaled the plans down with only an additional diner in a separate building alongside the rest of the facilities, and space for this can be seen next to the hotel.

The services opened on 29 July 2008 and mirror Leicester services, which opened four weeks before, with the site branded as Extra. When it opened the amenity building included a KFC Drive Thru, Starbucks, LP4 and a Game Grid gaming area with the 81-bed hotel branded as an Etap Hotel and Shell providing the fuel.

The official name upon opening was Derby with Burton - it seemed that Extra had learned from all the trouble at Blackburn with Darwen - but it is now known as Derby and Burton. In planning, it had been called Willington Roadside Service Area.

Change of Ownership

When Swayfields fell into administration, the site passed to their creditors Lloyds TSB, who subsequently sold this liability to Deutsche Postbank. Since January 2011, the services have been managed on Deutsche Postbank's behalf by Quadrant Estates who intended to create profit by selling the current outlets.

Following the change of ownership, the site was rebranded with a large blue 'S' being displayed on signage around the site as opposed to Extra's logo. The Starbucks unit also closed and partially became Hamiltons, which itself later closed.

Recent Developments

Accor Hotels rebranded the hotel to an Ibis Budget in 2012 following their withdrawal of the Etap Hotel brand. The hotel later gained an extension in 2018 which saw a restaurant and outdoor seating area added.

As of 2014, the additional units still hadn't materialised, but banners in the car park claimed they were coming. In April 2017, it was revealed there was a problem with the original design of the proposed building and a new version, compromising of four units to be leased out, was being worked on. These units eventually appeared in 2019 but as of Autumn 2021 are yet to house any tenants.

The filling station was one of the first three in the UK to gain Shell's new Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging points in late 2017. In 2018, after a small refurbishment, a Little Waitrose at Shell Select concession opened.

In early 2019, the LP4 unit closed and was replaced a gourmet hot dog company called Banger Bros. Banger Bros lasted less than 6 months and they closed later in 2019.
