Trivia and History
Broadhelm Business Park was first proposed in 2006, and this corner (known as Hodsow Field) was designated a leisure area, which could include a hotel and a pub-restaurant. The project had to wait until the new roundabout had been constructed on the A1079 in 2011, by which point the economy had gone downhill and hotel operators had lost interest.
Having something to pull passers-by in was key to the business park, so a new plan was created with a petrol station, drive thru and a pub-restaurant. The petrol station opened in 2014, by The Brookfield Group, and instead two drive thru units opened in the following years.
A Burger King Drive Thru and Enterprise Car Hire were added on the opposite side of Hodsow Lane in 2022, meaning the range of facilities now fills all the space available.
The service area hasn't been given full signing by the local authority, but "Services" is used as a generic destination on the roundabout, to highlight the entrance. It is also shown as "Services" by Ordnance Survey.
By coincidence, there was once a Little Chef here. It opened in the 1970s and closed in around 1987.
