Trivia and History

Entrance to a Greggs store from inside a shop.
The former Greggs store, pictured in 2022.

Margram proposed a service area for the Norwich Road Roundabout in 1989. The plans included a filling station and family restaurant on land to the north of the junction, adjacent to Grange Farm. A filling station and McDonald's drive-thru restaurant were eventually built here, opening in Summer 1994.

The filling station was formerly operated by Malthurst, who later merged with MRH in the early 2010s when their own-brand Hursts store was added to the site.

The McDonald's restaurant received a major refurbishment in 2009 which saw new outdoor seating areas added. The drive-thru lane was also re-configured in summer 2016, with the site reopening on 22 September 2016. The car park was also extended at this point to utilise previous unused land.

MFG demolished the car wash here in October 2021 and began adding a new extension to the sales building. The site reopened on 9 December 2021 with a new Londis store, a new Greggs store and 2 new jet wash bays. During the works, shop facilities were provided in a portable building.

The forecourt was sold to SGN Retail in March 2023, to placate the Competition and Markets Authority. The Greggs store closed shortly after the takeover, due to franchising issues. The rest of the site closed on 24 April to rebrand the shop to Costcutter and introduce new food to go offerings. The site reopened on 5 May with additional food to go offerings replacing the former Greggs space. A Revolution Laundry machine was added in August 2023.

The service area here is not connected to the Swaffham branch of Little Chef, which was built several miles west of here at Swaffham Heath.
