Trivia and History
In 1986 there were plans for a forecourt and restaurant on either side of the road here. A pair of Mobil forecourts opened here, creating Orsett Cock services.
The plans for a restaurant persisted for some time, and in 1995 an eastbound Little Chef opened. In 1997, plans for a 40-bed Travelodge to join the eastbound Little Chef were refused. The Little Chef later closed in 2005. A McDonald's drive thru later opened on the westbound side.
Following the closure of the Little Chef in 2005, BP were granted planning permission to demolish the former restaurant and use the land for a lorry park, however this didn't happen. The building still survives now playing home to Sigma Studies.
In April 2018, the southbound filling station became one of three trial sites within the UK to gain a card-only self service checkout situated within the M&S store.
3 bp pulse electric vehicle charging points are due to be installed on the westbound side in 2021.
