Trivia and History
The Teddington Hands crossroads (also called Cross Hands) was positioned just to the south of here, with a garage roughly in the position that it is now. The 'hands' are the finger post which is still positioned there today. There is also the Tibble Stone, which according to folklore the stone was thrown by a giant from nearby Bredon Hill.
After the road was upgraded an AJ's was built next to the petrol station. In 1997 this became the Tewkesbury branch of Little Chef. Shortly after the Ashchurch branch, positioned three miles to the west, closed. In 2002 the Tewkesbury branch (here) closed and a new Aschurch branch opened.
The Tewkesbury Little Chef is now Teddington Stores.
The petrol station was branded Murco. It was acquired by MFG in early 2015, who re-branded the filling station to Texaco. In mid-2018, the current forecourt shop was extended to add a Subway store to the filling station. The Subway store opened in September 2018.
