Trivia and History

The construction of Broadbridge Way left some land left over. This was bought by the local family firm Fisher's Garage, who moved their business here in October 1982. Their development included Kingfisher House, a grand-looking building which had extensions, outbuildings and conservatories, where it acted as a car showroom and garage, and a deal to build a Happy Eater next to the new road.

The Happy Eater opened in June 1983, with a typical brick building with a small roof.

Fisher's Garage had become a Shell forecourt by the 1990s. It was an unusual building with a diamond-shaped sales shop that formed part of the canopy, and had tall windows along every wall. A mast on the ceiling held the canopy.

That Happy Eater became a Little Chef in 1997. This traded until 2007, when it closed and was converted into another car showroom. The haphazard showroom arrangement remained for several years, until all of the buildings were demolished and replaced with a single, contemporary, multi-brand car showroom building in around 2014. The road signs began to be taken down, though many remained.

The next change was to the forecourt, which was demolished and replaced with a typical Shell Select sales shop and forecourt layout in 2018. The new shop included a Budgens store.

The opening of the Broadbridge Heath Relief Road in 2015 meant that all traffic heading for the forecourt to or from the A24 south now had to pass through the High Wood Hill Junction in addition to the Farthings Hill Roundabout, a diversion which passes a large supermarket. Despite this, new signs for the service area were placed on the A24.
