Trivia and History
The roundabout at Baynard's Green used to be where the A43 crossed the main A41. A small Esso filling station was provided in the north-east corner.
In the early 2000s, the A43 was replaced by a new dual carriageway to the east. Remarkably, this skirted the side of the petrol station, saving it from demolition, although some of its land was taken away. The road connecting to the service area, which is used as a lay-by, is the original line of the A43.
The filling station was later demolished in 2004 anyway, but rebuilt in the same place as one of Esso's On The Run cafés which offered Costa. This was then sold to Euro Garages in 2015, who replaced the On the Run café with Greggs and Subway concessions, with the latter closing in early 2020.
A LEON Coffee machine trial was introduced here in summer 2022, replacing the former Starbucks on the Go machines. If successful, EG Group intend to roll-out LEON Coffee to replace Starbucks on the Go across their network.
A McDonald's opened in 2018 on the remains of a field to the north. The car park used to feature a PodPoint electric vehicle charging point but this was replaced by two InstaVolt chargers in June 2022.
