Trivia and History

BP Elwick services.
The older northbound building, with BP and Subway branding in 2019.

The northbound forecourt started as Gunnersvale Garage, which was built in 1952 on land belonging to Gunnersvale Farm. When the A19 was upgraded to become a dual carriageway in the late 1960s, the garage would now be positioned beside the northbound carriageway. As a result a southbound counterpart was built in 1975.

Both sides of the service area have been proposed for expansion, with three new restaurants and two new hotels having all been proposed since 2007. The Ron Perry website still claims that development for a restaurant and hotel are still available and that you should "check back soon", but there is no evidence of any progress and the land remains bare.

The fuel supplier changed from Total to BP in 2008, and it changed from BP to Shell in June 2019.

The filling stations used to be home to a pair of cafés called 'A19 Cafe', but in late 2014 these were replaced by Subway franchises. The filling station stores were rebranded from Mace to Londis in 2017. The Subway stores were removed in 2020, being replaced by several 'grab and go' options.
