Trivia and History
When the Maresfield Bypass was built, provision was included for a service area here. The finished road had an embankment provided for the slip roads. Plans started in 1985, put forward by Norfolk House and Forte, and it opened in 1998 with a Little Chef and a Total petrol station.
The Little Chef, which looked sunk down away from the road, quickly gained a drive thru, but the whole building closed in 2010. There was a plan for it to be converted to a KFC, but it re-opened two years later as a McDonald's instead.
Since 2012 the petrol station has been branded Shell. The filling station closed in late 2018 for major refurbishment works reopening on 22 February 2019 with a refurbished forecourt and Little Waitrose & Partners branded store.
