Opened as Newmarket Heath 1984

The westbound forecourt is also known as Rowley Mile and eastbound as 1000 Guineas. When built, it was called Newmarket Heath. The eastbound services has an overflow car park which backs onto a local road, providing a secret exit.

The collection of facilities were initially developed by Landware Group Holdings. They claimed they were building it to resolve the lack of services on the M11, although the M11 is some distance away. It may be that they wanted to allow for possible services at Newport, or simply that they wanted additional traffic from the A45.

Both restaurants here are former Little Chef sites. The westbound Little ChefHistory closed in 2007 and the eastbound Little ChefHistory closed in 2017.

BP Express operate the filling stations and Euro Garages operate the restaurants.
