Trivia and History
The northbound forecourt started as Gunnersvale Garage, which was built in the 1960s. A few years later the A19 was upgraded to a dual carriageway and this became a northbound-only facility, so in 1975 the southbound side was built.
In 2007, planning permission was granted to significantly expand the northbound side by building a drive-thru restaurant and a 40-bed hotel to the north of the filling station. In 2008, planning permission was also granted to significantly expand the southbound side. These plans included a drive-thru restaurant, standalone restaurant and 120-bed hotel to the north of the existing OK Diner restaurant. The northbound plans were also amended in 2008 with the hotel now proposed to include 80 rooms. The planning applications were later extended in 2012 however nothing ever came of either of the plans and both sites have large plots of empty land to this day. The Ron Perry website still claims that development for a restaurant and hotel are still available and that you should 'check back soon for further details of an exciting new project'.
The filling stations used to be home to a pair of cafés called 'A19 Cafe', but these were replaced by Subway in late 2014. The filling station stores were re-branded during 2017 from Mace to Londis. The Subway stores were also replaced in 2020 for several grab and go options.
