Trivia and History
Plans for a service area at this busy junction were first submitted in 1991 by Fairhurst Land Developers. The first drawings showed the entry roundabout further east than it is now, with a lodge in the south-west corner, a shop and restaurant in the north-west corner and a picnic area in the north-east corner. The car park was in the middle with lorry parking at the north end, and the petrol station is roughly in the same place it is today. The 'missing' A19 southbound slip road was provided as part of the project.
In 1995, a second set of plans were submitted by Saxon Petroleum. These plans were set out in roughly the layout we see today and proposed to feature a BP filling station, a McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant, a OK Diner restaurant, a Fatty Arbuckles restaurant, a Greene King pub featuring a Wacky Warehouse children's play area, a Holiday Inn Express hotel and a picnic area with a lake. In 1996, the plans were picked up by Roadside Group Ltd. who altered the plans several times throughout the year until finally in 1997 the final site plan was confirmed and granted planning permission. The final plans featured the bp filling station, McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant, hotel and family restaurant alongside the picnic area and lake.
The site eventually opened in 1998 with a BP filling station, McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant, Holiday Inn Express hotel and an Innkeepers Fayre pub-restaurant known as the 'Wynyard Park Inn' featuring a Wacky Warehouse children's play area.
In 1999, Granada were granted planning permission to build a Little Chef in the centre of the site next to a small garden. This opened as the Billingham branch in 2000 and was one of their last sites to open. The Little Chef was short lived and later closed in 2005 being left empty for a few months with Little Chef still paying the rent. In 2006, the restaurant was demolished and replaced by a KFC Drive Thru, with the garden becoming car parking.
In 2005, the Wynyard Park Inn was rebranded to the Wolviston branch of Toby Carvery.
In around 2007, the hotel received a 29-bed extension. The hotel also changed to a Premier Inn around this time.
The filling station later went onto be branded Shell. In late 2012, the filling station changed back to BP.
In 2016, a Costa Drive Thru was built on one of the only remaining undeveloped areas of the site adjacent to the A19 southbound sliproad. The hotel and restaurant also received an extension in the same year.
In December 2018, a Domino's Pizza store was added next to the entrance road. In 2020, two InstaVolt electric vehicle charging points were installed in the Domino's Pizza car park.
In January 2021, planning permission was granted for MFG to install 8 electric vehicle charging points on their forecourt. These charging points are expected to be installed in 2021.
