Trivia and History

The service area was built in the 1960s as a petrol station called Skip Bridge. There were plans to add a caravan park and a vehicle showroom.

A restaurant was added by Happy Eater in around 1985. It became a Little Chef in around 1994, which closed in 2002. It's now Sweet Basil.

The forecourt is operated by The Co-operative Group. It was previously branded BP.
