Trivia and History

BP forecourt.
The old forecourt roof.

A short distance south of here is the notorious Black Cat Roundabout, with an unsigned service area.

The restaurant was an AJ's, but this was sold in 1995.

The forecourt was operated by The Carsley Group. It was rebuilt in 2013, with the new roof replacing a long, thin one.

The site formerly included a Londis store. This was changed when Applegreen brought the site.

In November 2018 Applegreen purchased a significant stake of Welcome Break. One of the trade-offs of the purchase was that Wyboston would eventually be re-branded Welcome Break, and adjusted to reflect the rest of their estate.
