Trivia and History

The unusual name 'The Buck' is shown on the road signs, despite the area being known as Longparish and Forton.

There was a pub called The George Inn, and to the west of it were a series of cottages in an area known as Cottage End. When the A303 here was upgraded, these were all demolished and the pub became the site of the petrol station.

The Longparish branch of Little Chef was built in the late 1960s to the west of the petrol station, with its own access from the A303. This was a small, oddly-shaped building, with a long, thin store room sticking out from the back and a rounded dining area. It closed in around 2005 and was demolished to make way for a larger petrol station.

The forecourt used to be provided by Mobil.

2 bp pulse electric vehicle charging points are due to be installed here during 2021.
