Many different facilities clustered around an important roundabout, like several services in the east of England, however these have now condensed to provide just the core facilities.

Trivia and History
Only the south-west corner of the junction receives 'services' signs. This part caters mainly for northbound traffic on the A614.
These facilities are the only ones signed facilities as 'services' from the roundabout. The filling station is operated by Shell.
In the south-east corner and serving mainly southbound traffic on the A614 is another forecourt, and a McDonald's outlet. The forecourt was branded Texaco until 2011, when it became a Total, and then an Esso in 2015.
This forecourt is operated by MFG.
On the western side was a small car park and Tourist Information Centre with toilets. This was demolished in summer 2015 and replaced with a Hungry Horse pub called The Alders.
These facilities are just as easily-accessed from the roundabout as the signposted services.
