Trivia and History

Little Chef Thrussington.
The former Roadchef.

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.

More curiously, the restaurant here was built by Roadchef, as part of their early expansion. It was called Green Acres services. It would have been similar to Bothwell.

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'.
