Trivia and History[edit]

Little Chef Thrussington.
The former Roadchef building.

Today the southbound side has no signs from the road, but offers an independent café and motel. Until November 2012 the restaurant was a Little Chef, and until 2013 the motel was a Travelodge, which had been built in 1987 as a Little Chef Lodge.

More curiously, the southbound restaurant was built by Roadchef, as part of their early expansion. It was called Green Acres services after a facility which previously existed here. It had an Amoco filling station and opened in around 1974. It was sold within a few years.

On the northbound side, the Shell forecourt, which provides the main facility, was Total until November 2012. The café is a converted bungalow with parking in the back garden.

Both services are sometimes referred to as 'Six Hills'.
