Trivia and History

This service area was a typical restaurant and filling station set-up. A commercial yard is also accessed through the services which is now home to Britalba, who also have truck wash facilities.

The restaurant was formerly home to 'M's Family Diner'. This closed in 2009 and became Carriages Car Wash Café for a year before being put up to let. The restaurant was later purchased by the former owners of the restaurant in 2014 who turned the site into a motor repair garage and van rental yard called 'M's Building Supplies'.

The filling station has been branded BP since at least the 2000s. In 2013, the filling station was acquired by MRH who added their Hursts store to the site. The site was later acquired by MFG in 2018 following the merger of the two companies.

MFG were granted planning permission to redevelop the site in January 2020 which will see the current sales building, car wash and jet wash demolished and a new, larger sales building in its place with official customer parking, 2 new jet wash bays and installing 2 new electric vehicle charging bays added. Work commenced on the site in late April 2021 and the site is expected to reopen in summer 2021.
