Trivia and History

Normally A-roads don't have any planning behind their services, as it's up to the free market to provide the appropriate level of facilities. When the Witney Bypass opened in 1976, Oxfordshire County Council were unusually insistent that a lorry park be provided at Ducklington.

The Department of Transport generally took the position that they didn't have the budget to provide A-road services, but at Ducklington they were keen on the idea of funding a lorry park.

In the event the sought-after rest area wasn't built, but a Total forecourt, with their Bonjour shop, known as the Regal Garage. There was an adjacent car showroom which became a Countrywide restaurant. The forecourt became Shell.

There is still no HGV parking at the services, but some use New Close Lane.
