Trivia and History

A small garage was built here in the 1950s. Following the re-alignment of the A361 here in the 1980s, planning permission was granted in 1987 to add a restaurant to attract custom back to the site now it had been bypassed. These plans were later renewed in 1989 to include a forecourt redevelopment amongst the plans however neither of these happened and the restaurant was never built.

The forecourt was formerly branded Total until 2012 when, following Total's nationwide shutdown, the site rebranded to Gulf. In summer 2019, the site was sold to new owners who rebranded the site to Murco.
