Trivia and History

Esso.
Spaldwick in 2007, when it was an Esso.

There was a garage on the edge of Spaldwick at least as far back as 1978.

When the A604 Spaldwick Bypass opened in 1983, a new petrol station was built immediately next door, closer to the new road. No signage was provided from the new road. When plans were announced to turn the A604 into the A14, there was further interest in the petrol station, including a proposal to build a fast food restaurant, which didn't happen.

The old garage became a small housing estate in 1997.

The forecourt was initially branded Esso. It then defected to Total, before returning to Esso.

In 2012 the forecourt was purchased by Applegreen. This would be a good investment as the A14 was about to be diverted away from its previous service area at Brampton Hut. While Applegreen were planning a refurbishment, it maintained Esso's colour scheme, using Applegreen's 'low-rent' brand name, 'Low Fuel Prices Always'. The building suffered from an arson attack in 2015, which prompted a large refurbishment scheme. Applegreen arranged for new signs to be placed on the A14 in 2018.

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.
