Trivia and History[edit]

The services are really in two distinct halves, although traffic can use either.

Westbound[edit]

The services were built by Top Rank in the 1980s, as part of an experiment to try catching traffic with smaller facilities on a-roads. In 1992, Top Rank were bought by Pavilion, but the company were worried about their finances and looked to sell off the least-profitable sites.

With that, the services were sold to Trusthouse Forte, who decided to convert the building to a large Happy Eater. The next year Forte were taken over by Granada who converted the restaurant to a Little ChefHistory and Burger King. Those restaurants had closed by 2006 and the building was purchased by a restaurant.

In 2012 the filling station was sold by previous owners TCS to Shell.

Eastbound[edit]

Newark services.
The former AJ's restaurant.

The restaurant here was opened by AJ's, rivalling the existing services. In 1998 it was converted by Granada to a Little Chef, which then closed in 2005.

The filling station was formerly branded as Murco and is now operated by MFG.
