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.
In December 2020, planning permission was granted for the final parcel of land left at Solstice Park in the north-west corner to be filled with two drive-thru units with associated parking and the installation of 4 InstaVolt electric vehicle charging points. Unit 1 is due to be filled with a Greggs Drive Thru whilst the occupants of unit 2 are still yet to be confirmed.
