Trivia and History

The petrol station was branded Jet, Mobil, BP, and then Shell. It was built between 1955 and 1974, probably towards the end of that era. It was known locally as Rowborough Garage, named after the adjacent Rowborough (Roughborough) Farm.

The Stretton-on-Fosse branch of Little Chef opened here in 1976. It closed in about 2006, and became Cotswold Spice. This closed and became Cafe Bangla, then Pitstop Cafe, and is now used by Cotswold Cars.

The land was put up for sale in July 2019, as the landowner was retiring. The forecourt was broken into on 15 July 2019. A vehicle was used to ram the sales shop and did significant damage, and the place was left closed. It reopened in summer 2020 and was finally sold to AKV Garages in January 2021, who reopened the forecourt, and are planning an extension.

A tired road sign on the A429 has several covered-up sections, as the facilities have changed over time. It continues to advise that accommodation is available.
