Trivia and History
S V Milnes operated a garage, with a small shed-like building and Shell-branded pumps, next to the single carriageway A1.
With road widening planned, the site was rebuilt in 1963, with a much larger garage building and seven new pumps. It was soon joined by the North Muskham branch of Little ChefHistory, which opened in the summer of 1965, in tandem with Cromwell. The A1 widening was completed the following January, and this became a southbound-only service area.
The Little Chef was thoroughly refurbished in the 1980s, where it gained a Little Chef Lodge, which would later become a Travelodge. A Burger King was added to the building in the 1990s, with the main Little Chef eventually closing in April 2015 and continuing as just a Little Chef-operated Burger King.
Euro Garages acquired the Burger King in January 2017 when they brought the rights to Little Chef. They closed it for refurbishment in late 2018, reopening it in February 2019 in an extended building with a new Greggs store. The original plans also included space for a coffee shop however this space is now hidden behind a fake wall.
The forecourt was later operated by The Carsley Group, who provided BP and a Londis store. It was taken over by Applegreen in May 2018.
Following the second coronavirus lockdown in December 2020, Travelodge permanently closed the hotel here, preferring their new hotel in Newark-on-Trent town centre.
Applegreen later transferred their larger UK petrol stations to Welcome Break, but North Muskham was initially excluded because they only provide minimal catering facilities here. This policy was rectified in early 2023, with Welcome Break calling their new site their 'Muskham' branch. Welcome Break now intend to rebrand the forecourt to their Welcome Break fuel brand in Spring 2023.
