A newly-rebuilt petrol station on the A1.
Super Service Station
Great North Road
- Grid reference: TF069012
Trivia and History
A service station was positioned here long before the A1 was upgraded to dual carriageway. This came to be known as Super service station and it had a large parking area, gaining a café called 'Woodview Café'.
Another petrol station called Abbotts Wood service station was built on the southbound side, but this closed and was eventually demolished. Its position - and a dilapidated building - can still be made out. In 2010 and 2017 there were plans to bring it back into use. Any re-use would have to be small as it's only a small site.
The northbound café closed and was demolished to become an additional parking area. In August 2018 this became a Starbucks operated by 23.5 Degrees.
During early 2018, the filling station underwent a major refurbishment with a Budgens store replacing Londis, Starbucks on the Go replacing Costa Express and a new Subway store being added. It is operated by MFG.
