Trivia and History

Halt Cafe.
The former Halt Café is now home to Greggs.

The Vulcan Lodge, positioned immediately to the south, was the main hotel serving Doldowlod railway station, which closed in 1962. The name "halt" derives from this.

The hotel had a new lease of life when the new A470 opened in the 1970s. A petrol station was built next to the hotel, which would become the main service area that is recognised by the highway authority.

The petrol station was formerly branded Texaco, with a post office and shop called The Halt Store, and an attached café called The Halt Café. In 2010, the shop rebranded to Mace.

By 2015, the petrol station, which was under the ownership of High Noon Stores, was branded Gulf, the shop was branded SPAR, and the café was known as The Halt gaining a more American diner theme rather than a café. In 2017, after the collapse of High Noon Stores, it was taken over by Euro Garages, with the forecourt being branded Esso and the café refitted to become a Greggs store.
