Trivia and History
The northbound side was home to the Weston Rhyn branch of Little Chef. It opened in 1990 and closed in 2005. The forecourt opened as the Moreton Bridge garage in the 1940s, and by the 1980s it had moved slightly to replace an ancient property.
The newer roundabout site used to be an unsigned forecourt, but gained official road signage following a refurbishment of the site in 2017.
Vacant land next to the lorry park at the roundabout site is currently advertised to let.
