Trivia and History

The picnic area and toilet block here overlook the River Severn and were built by the Highways Agency in around 1990 with the café being added shortly after. The site is still maintained by National Highways to this day.

Access to the site from the A5 south-eastbound requires using an elaborate loop road running under a large viaduct carrying the A5 over the neighbouring River Severn.
