Trivia and History
Although Feering services is only available on the northbound side, there is a Shell forecourt called Doggetts Lane close by on the southbound side. It was built on the site of The Trowel and Hammer and The Spaniard pubs, but it isn't officially signposted as a service area.
The first facility in the vicinity of Feering services was St Christopher Garage. It was positioned to the west, right by where the entrance from Kelvedon joins. This later took on Texaco branding, and is now the dwelling called St Christopher Bungalow.
An independent diner was built a little north-east of here. In 1986, this was bought by Happy Eater who demolished the building and re-built it. The new building had stone-effect walls, and a Happy Eater weather vane which outlived the restaurant.
In January 2017, Euro Garages purchased the site but only purchased the rights to the Little Chef brand for a year so in January 2018 they rebranded it to EG Diner.
In August 2018 the EG Diner and Burger King both closed. The building was refurbished and reopened in January 2019 with Burger King and Greggs stores.
Plans to relocate the filling station to be sited next to the restaurant date back to 1992 when Texaco submitted plans for this. They also submitted plans in 1995 but both sets of plans were later withdrawn. Eventually, in 1997, Texaco moved to a new larger site next to the Little Chef. The old filling station was partially demolished and became the bungalow. Its entrance remains as a driveway while the old exit has been grassed over. The new filling station had Star Market branding.
