Trivia and History

Opened by Extra 2008
Sold to Quadrant Estates 2011

Not to be mixed up with Derby South, these new services opened on 29 July 2008 and mirror Leicester services, which opened four weeks before.

The official name of this service area 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.

When Extra's parent company Swayfields fell into administration, these services 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.

The petrol 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.

Unused Units

The early planning documents showed separate buildings for two food units. By 2005, the plans still had an additional diner in a separate building, and space for this can be seen next to the motel.

As of 2014, those outdoor buildings still hadn't materialised, but banners outside claimed they were coming. Meanwhile, the Starbucks became a Hamiltons and sits next to a unit which is still unused.

In April 2017, it was revealed there was a problem with the design of the proposed building and a new version, compromising of four units to be leased out, was being worked on.

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.
