Trivia and History
The service area opened in 1990 with a Happy Eater, a Travelodge and a Total forecourt. It had been envisaged as a Little Chef to go with its westbound partner, but neither of these happened. Total knew it as 'Expressway services'.
Forte changed the Happy Eater to the more profitable Little Chef brand in 1996, and this branch received additional attention with a thorough refurbishment providing air conditioning, new furniture and a blue colour scheme, in order to attract more evening diners. It was known as the 'Northop Hall' branch.
The forecourt became Shell in 2012, and was re-built in 2016. Shell know it as their 'Northop Hall' site, with 'Expressway' being its address. They installed four Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging points in 2021. These aren't expected to be switched on until November 2022
