Trivia and History
The whole complex is generally called Sheffield services, while the petrol station is called Parkway service station.
It is built on the site of an old depot. A plan was made by Esso in 1988, and it opened the following year. Granada added a Granada Hotel with integrated restaurant shortly afterwards. In 1994, this was sold to Forte who turned them into a Travelodge and the Sheffield branch of Little Chef. Shortly afterwards, the Forte brand was purchased by Granada anyway, who added a Burger King.
As recently as 1996, Granada promoted it as one of their major sites, giving the same status in leaflets as their motorway service areas.
The Little Chef closed in summer 2010 and became a drive-thru restaurant called 'Cluck' however this then closed in December 2018 and the building now lies empty.
