Trivia and History
Plans for a service area here on Hill House Farm go right back to 1988.
The petrol station and McDonald's were built in around 1996. The developers left plenty of space for an expansion to the west and to the south, including a whole parking area which wasn't used. A Holiday Inn was built on some of the remaining land.
In 2018 Forrest Park was developed next to the service area. This meant a new junction had to be created, which also allowed traffic leaving the service area to head back towards the A1(M) without having to make a detour. The new road signs are blue, implying that this is a motorway service area for the A1(M), but in reality it is not big enough and it is only a local service area. At the same time the restaurant was refurbished.
In April 2020, the Subway store was replaced with a dailyDeli counter.
The petrol station is marked as "Services" by the Ordnance Survey.
