Trivia and History
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.
