Trivia and History

Little Chef Hickstead.
The Little Chef in 2009.

The Hickstead junction on the A23 used to offer easy access to The Castle Hotel and a 1920s garage, which in the 1970s became a full petrol station with a branch of Little Chef. There was a plan to add a hotel here but it didn't happen.

In 1993 that garage and Little Chef had to be demolished to make way for the upgraded A23. In response, Forte built a new, much larger service area in the opposite corner of the new junction. The restaurant had a coffee shop which became a Burger King. It closed in 2017 as part of Euro Garages's shutdown.

The petrol station is Shell and is sometimes known as Ricebridge.
