Trivia and History
There was a building called Prizet View to the west of the A6 (now A591), built after the road was straightened out in the 1930s. This gained a petrol station in the 1960s.
In the 1970s the road was upgraded to a dual carriageway and a new southbound petrol station opened. The two have operated as a pair since - originally BPs but they became Shell in February 2015.
The old alignment of the A6 still forms part of the northbound petrol station.
In 1998 a Little Chef opened next to the southbound petrol station, and a northbound motel was added in 2005. The Little Chef closed in the same year and became The Energy Centre, now a flooring company.
