Trivia and History

Solstice Park is a large amount of land on the outskirts of Amesbury, which became ripe for development after the junction was upgraded. A number of industrial units and restaurants can now be found around this junction, with a couple of 'services' signs pointing to the centre. When traffic is flowing well the easy access to the A303 is a bonus, but for the restaurants a lot of the appeal of the site probably comes from the regular, severe queues on the westbound carriageway here.

Despite the apparently haphazard nature of the services, there are still a number of HGV bays provided by the filling station. This is a former Texaco filling station, now ran under the Co-op brand.

The park is home to six Charlotte Moreton sculptures.

The lack of eastbound signage may be to avoid competing with Countess.

Co-operative Group operate the filling station.
