Trivia and History
The junction of the single carriageway A1 and Stannington Station Road had two petrol stations: a garage on the northbound side next to The Bungalow, and a petrol station on the southbound side called Klondyke.
The northbound one was eventually closed and demolished, but the southbound one gained a Little Chef in the 1970s. It was one of the original Little Chefs, with a small, box-shaped building.
Despite the bypass, it managed to survive until 2004, when it was finally closed due to low sales. It's now the Indian restaurant Char Mausum.
