Trivia and History
Soon after the Guildford and Godalming Bypass opened in 1934, a garage was built at the corner of the junction with Lower Eashing. It was a small building with a thatched roof. The place then grew and watched the A3 around it become busier and busier, becoming the service area that is here today.
The exit was improved, with Eashing Bridge being widened, after the Milford Bypass was built in the 1970s.
The site was acquired by Lawrences Garages in October 1987 and they operated the site until 1998 when it was sold to Tankerford Ltd.
Tankerford operated the site under Esso branding during the 2000s before rebranding to BP in the early 2010s. They later sold the site in April 2022.
Signs calling Eashing an official service area were updated in the 2000s, and then all removed in 2015. They were reinstated in late 2021.
Eashing in the media
The site was significantly damaged on 24 March 2011, as well as two other vehicles, after a 7.5 tonne truck smashed into the SPAR store. The site was deemed unsafe by the local authority and closed for several weeks after.
The forecourt shop also suffered significant damage on 15 May 2015 when thieves ram-raided the shop with a JCB digger.
