Trivia and History[edit]

This was built as a petrol station and the Foston Motel, later mapped as Hyde-A-Way. This became a private dwelling and a flat-roofed Little Chef restaurant.

The Little Chef closed in 2007, becoming Beakers Roadside Restaurant and, in 2012, LJ's Diner. LJ's closed in late 2013, leaving behind a cluttered shell.

The filling station is operated by MFG. It was formerly branded as Jet and before that Texaco. The forecourt shop still retains Jet 'Shop' branding and colours.

The site was formerly a Highways Agency approved truckstop and is also known as Toll Bar services.
