Trivia and History

This was built as a petrol station and the Foston Motel, later mapped as Hyde-A-Way. This became a private dwelling and a flat-roofed Little Chef restaurant.

The Little Chef closed in 2007, becoming Beakers Roadside Restaurant and, in 2012, LJ's Diner. LJ's closed in late 2013, leaving behind a cluttered shell. The building is now home to a catering company. In February 2020, MFG submitted plans to demolish the former restaurant building and build a new Starbucks Drive Thru on the land with 4 electric vehicle charging bays. A decision is yet to be made.

The filling station was formerly branded as Jet and before that Texaco. The forecourt shop still retained Jet 'Shop' branding and colours until summer 2019 when the shop was rebranded Londis.

The site was formerly a Highways Agency approved truckstop and is also known as Toll Bar services.
