Trivia and History

Spaldwick when it was an Esso.

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.

It became a Total, then Esso.

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.
