Trivia and History[edit]

The services are signed from the M56 despite it technically not being a motorway service area.

This junction used to be a roundabout, with the Red Ensign filling station in one corner. At the time this had access from what was called the A540 and the A550. Behind it, on the A550, were two police houses.

In 1986 Forte started proposals to replace the two houses with a Little ChefHistory. This opened and later gained a Burger King, which became a Coffee Tempo!.

The restaurant lost some visibility when the A550 was replaced by the improved A494, and in line with the general demise of the chain, it closed on 25 September 2012.
