Trivia and History
The forecourt was built in 1975. It acts as a local facility, with an entrance and an exit for local traffic.
There used to be a diner at the back. By the start of the 21st century, both this and the forecourt were derelict.
Quickbreak Services demolished these in early 2005, building a new Total filling station and car wash with a two-storey sales building. This included a SPAR store and café on the ground floor and offices on the first floor. The filling station rebranded to Gulf in late 2014.
The site was purchased by Applegreen in early 2020, who demolished the shop and rebuilt a similar building in the same spot, branding the shop Budgens and replacing the café space with a Greggs. The site opened on Valentine's Day 2020.
On Christmas Day 2020, a fire in a store room caused severe damage to Budgens and Greggs. A portable cabin and snack bar were installed whilst Applegreen demolished and rebuilt the shop. The rebuilt sales building reopened in December 2021.
