Trivia and History

A car driving along a dual carriageway, with a garage building in the distance, with S V Milnes written on the wall.
The rebuilt service area in 1966, seen from across the newly widened road.

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, but this space is now hidden behind a fake wall.

Recent Changes

The forecourt was later operated by The Carsley Group, who offered BP-branded fuel and a Londis store. It was taken over by Applegreen in May 2018.

The Travelodge permanently closed in December 2020, with them preferring their new hotel in Newark-on-Trent town centre.

Applegreen transferred their larger UK petrol stations to their newly-acquired Welcome Break division, 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.

The site was officially de-branded from BP on 1 April 2023 and is expected to fully rebrand to the Welcome Break brand before the end of 2023.
