Trivia and History

McDonald's drive thru restaurant.
The McDonald's Drive Thru.

Following the opening of the Spalding Bypass in 1995, plans for a filling station and drive-thru restaurant on the north-east quadrant of the Springfields roundabout were soon being proposed. Permission was granted in 1998, with space left to the north and east of the site for future development.

The McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant opened on 23 December 1998, with the modular building taking a weekend to construct on-site.

During 1999, plans for a 160-seater family diner, hotel and fast food restaurant from Mansfield Brewery were also granted planning permission. The site also saw interest from the owners of Little Chef, who proposed one of their Little Chef/Burger King combination restaurant units here. Neither of these additional facilities were ever built.

A Shell filling station, operated by the Lincolnshire Co-operative Society, was later added to the site in 2001. This later re-branded Texaco in the mid-2000s, becoming Gulf in around 2012.

Castle Building Ltd proposed to build a 38-bed hotel on that undeveloped land to the east in 2006, labelled as 'Phase 2' of the service area, but these plans were refused.

A pub, hotel and KFC Drive Thru were proposed to open directly opposite on the south-east corner of the roundabout in 2011, but this didn't happen. Instead, a very similar development opened three miles to the west.

The filling station was sold to Karan Retail in February 2023. As a result, the shop rebranded to Londis and the filling station now operates 24 hours a day.

Four InstaVolt electric vehicle chargers were added to the McDonald's car park in early 2023.
