Trivia and History
The eastbound forecourt appears to date back to the 1950s and was originally owned by the car dealership on site. The site was acquired by Euro Garages in 2015 who added a Greggs store to the site in an extension to the existing sales building. They later rebranded the site from BP to Esso in June 2018 and more recently rebranded to store to Sainsbury's On the go in 2020 before reverting the site back to SPAR in late 2021.
There is also a BP forecourt at the Copt Oak Road roundabout which is unsigned. This is also known as the Flying Horse, referring to the pub on the adjacent side of the roundabout. The forecourt was operated by HKS until late 2018 before the business and all of its assets were sold to the Prax Group. HKS added a Costcutter store and Subway franchise to the site in early 2009 in an extension to the sales building.
