Trivia and History
The service area here was developed by Thornfield Roadside Ltd in 1991 as a filling station and motorists restaurant combination, with permission granted in April 1992. The site opened in 1995 as an Elf filling station alongside a McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant.
The forecourt went onto be owned by Malthurst under Pace branding in the early 2000s, before rebranding to Total in the mid-2000s. In 2010, the site was rebranded to Texaco. Malthurst's successor, MRH, rebranded the site to Esso with one of their own-brand Hursts stores in 2016. MRH was then acquired by MFG, who in 2019 reverted the forecourt back to Texaco before adding a Londis store during summer 2020.
The McDonald's restaurant went onto gain several extensions and reconfigurations, and in 2018 gained an external children's play area. The car park also gained a cash machine in 2001, situated in its own brick building, but has since been removed with the brick building remaining.
IONITY planned to install four electric vehicle charging bays at the back of the forecourt in 2019, but this plan was later withdrawn. Meanwhile, McDonald's installed two InstaVolt chargers in their car park in summer 2023.
