Trivia and History
The service area was built in the late 1970s or 1980s, after the A419 had been widened to become a dual carriageway. It offered an alternative to Seven Bridges, which was now only accessible on the southbound side.
Roadchef planned to build one of their new restaurants next to both Calcutt and Seven Bridges in 1988, but planning permission was refused.
When it was managed by Esso, Calcutt had 'On the Run' branding and a Costa Coffee unit. It was sold to Euro Garages in late 2015, and they branded the store SPAR and added Subway and Greggs concessions. The Subway permanently closed in 2020 and was later replaced by a Rollover cabinet in summer 2022.
The petrol station was listed as one of 13 petrol stations that should be sold to placate the Competition and Markets Authority, when investigating Asda's purchase of The Co-operative Group's petrol stations in 2023. However, the Co-op site at Cirencester was chosen instead. The site is currently being converted to an Asda On the Move store as planned, with the site being relaunched on 13 June.
