A newly-refurbished forecourt by the A14 westbound.
Trivia and History
When the new A14 opened in the 1990s, a small garage at the edge of Spaldwick thought its luck was in, gaining access from the new road. No signage was provided.
In 2016 the forecourt was purchased by Applegreen. It was a good investment as the A14 was about to be diverted away from the previous service area at Brampton Hut. The forecourt was refurbished and re-branded, and it gained new signs on the A14 in 2018 after a refurbishment. Until the refurbishment it maintained Esso's colour scheme, using Applegreen's 'low-rent' brand name, 'Low Fuel Prices Always'.
In November 2018 Applegreen purchased a significant stake of Welcome Break. One of the trade-offs of the purchase was that Spaldwick would eventually be re-branded Welcome Break, and adjusted to reflect the rest of their estate.
