Trivia and History
A pair of petrol stations were built here when the bypass of Great Casterton opened in the 1960s. The southbound side was abandoned and later demolished.
The northbound filling station was abandoned at some point during the early 1980s and in 1989 Pace redeveloped the filling station opening a Texaco forecourt. Throughout the 2000s the site included Texaco's own-branded Star Market and offered a Coffee Nation machine.
Plans for a restaurant to join the filling station date back to 1989 when Trusthouse Forte were granted planning permission to add a restaurant here. This didn't happen and instead in 1996 OK Diner built their Tickencote branch here.
The forecourt rebranded to Jet in 2011, and was later acquired by MRH in 2014 who rebranded the store to their own-brand Hursts. The site then transferred to Esso branding in 2016. In 2020, current owners MFG rebranded the store to Londis.
The garage was also signposted as the exit for a campsite.
