Trivia and History

The Little Chef restaurant, pictured in 1995.

The site is often called 'Egginton services'. Harvest Energy, who run it, call it Egginton, but BP know it as Willington.

Both filling stations appeared in the 1960s, shortly after the A38 was upgraded to become a dual carriageway. At the time they were known as Y-Pass Garage, a name that is still used locally. The southbound filling station is also home to a property called The Bungalow.

Little Chef opened their Eggington branch (often spelling it like that) next to the southbound filling station in 1979.

A Travelodge was planned to be opened here in 1995, but was refused permission. The Little Chef closed in around 2005 and became the Derby branch of OK Diner.

The site faced competition from 2008, when Derby & Burton services opened one mile to the north.

Forecourt History

By 2001, both filling stations were branded Esso. The forecourts were later acquired by Brobot Group, which were trading under the Jet brand and included KeyStore Express shops by 2008. By late 2014, both sites had rebranded to BP.

HKS Retail took over the sites in 2016 as part of their acquisition of Brobot Group, who themselves were later acquired by Prax Group in late 2018, with both sites trading as part of their Harvest Energy Retail section of the business. Harvest Energy added a Greggs store to the northbound filling station in 2019, before rebranding the shops to SPAR in 2020.
