Trivia and History[edit]

Plans for a service area on this new road first began in 1988, when Fina proposed a petrol station and a "motorists restaurant" - a possible Kelly's Kitchen. This was refused as it is Green Belt land, as was a subsequent application from BP.

An independent application proposed a large site with a lodge, which was refused, but a scaled-down proposal was eventually approved and opened in 1996.

The petrol station was formerly branded as BP Connect/Wild Bean Café, and is now operated by Rontec.
