Trivia and History
Full details: A14 Planning History
In 1987, several local authorities created a joint policy for service areas on the A1-M1 Link Road. This recommended building a service area here at Thrapston, and Forte soon proposed one.
The restaurant gained a Coffee Stop, which became a Burger King franchise. In 2017, Little Chef was taken over Euro Garages who later changed it to the temporary name EG Diner, as they weren't sure what to do with such a large restaurant. In August 2018, the EG Diner permanently closed, leaving behind the Burger King. The Burger King closed two weeks later at the end of August 2018.
The main building reopened in Autumn 2018 with Greggs and Subway replacing the EG Diner and the Burger King reopening after refurbishment. A Sainsbury's On the go store then joined the site in May 2019. The Sainsbury's On the go store then later closed following the coronavirus lockdown in summer 2020.
A housing development is being built next to the services, which will be accessed from within it.
