Trivia and History

Glews used to be the name of a vehicle workshop located on the old A614, before it was diverted to meet the new M62. The current service area is not signposted from the motorway, but calls itself Glews services and relies on it being visible and easily accessed.

Following the opening of the most easterly section of M62 in 1976, the workshop was acquired by Jos Richardson & Sons. They went onto add a Texaco forecourt in the 1980s as well as a Vauxhall franchise. In 1990, the Richardson family demolished the original Glews Garage and added Richwood Garage which became a Peugeot dealership.

The forecourt was significantly expanded in 1992 with the Richardson family purchasing neighbouring land to add a new convenience store and additional pumps. The site also rebranded to Shell at this point.

The forecourt and car dealerships were joined by a McDonald's drive-thru restaurant in 1997 with the restaurant proving popular with the local Goole community, gaining a McDonald's Party Bus in the car park in 1999. A Travel Inn and the Aire & Calder Brewers Fayre pub-restaurant later joined the site in 2000 creating the service area we see today. The hotel later rebranded to Premier Inn. The forecourt sales building gained an extension in 2005 adding additional sales space and new toilets. The store was also rebranded to SPAR at this point.

There were plans to add 5 business units to the south of the hotel in 2010 but these weren't built.

The old Peugeot dealership was demolished in the mid-2010s to make way for a large site redevelopment and re-alignment of the neighbouring A614. A new roundabout to accommodate the traffic for the new trade park opposite was added and new 'services' signs were placed at the entrance. Peugeot also relocated to the former Vauxhall dealership at the same time.

Jos Richardson then added a new secure HGV parking area and HGV forecourt in 2016 utilising the former sales space for the Richwood garage. The company's second Subway franchise was also added to the forecourt shop at the same time.

On 20 December 2019, the Peugeot dealership permanently closed after trading at the site for 40 years. In March 2021, EG Group applied for planning permission to demolish the car dealership, replacing it with a Starbucks Drive Thru and a KFC Drive Thru. The local authority are currently considering the plans.
