Trivia and History

The A617 bypass of Temple Normanton opened in 1970, carrying traffic towards the new M1 link road. This included a pair of filling stations, which were branded Esso and known as 'Heath services'.

In 1986, plans were proposed to convert the southbound oil store into a café.

The eastbound side was redeveloped in 1995 gaining a new canopy, pumps and sales building. Between 1995 and 1997, OK Diner proposed several plans to add one of their diners on the eastbound side. This would have become their Chesterfield branch, but it was never been built.

The westbound forecourt had ceased trading by the early 2000s and Esso later sold the site to Motor Provider, who demolished the former forecourt buildings in 2006 and built a car sales showroom on the site. The site was later sold onto Timberland Motorhomes in the early 2010s who continue to trade on the site to this day.

The eastbound side later gained Esso's Snack & Shop and a Coffee Nation machine in the 2000s before being sold to Euro Garages in 2013. Following the acquisition, Euro Garages rebranded the sales building to SPAR and added a Subway franchise and Starbucks on the Go machine.

Euro Garages later built their 54th Starbucks Drive Thru to the west of the forecourt in 2015, with the store opening on 18 November 2015. The Subway franchise was also swapped to a Greggs store in 2018.

The SPAR store was rebranded to Sainsbury's On the go for a time between late 2019 and late 2021, before reverting back to SPAR.
