Strictly speaking Worsted Lodge isn't an official A11 service station, but it's advertised from the road for its "parking and petrol station". A snack bar often parks in the lay-by.
No parking is available at the filling station but a lay-by is located at the end of the slip road which can accommodate all vehicles.
This information is provided to us by third parties. You should always check with staff on site.
Trivia and History
Worsted Lodge was a building on a crossroads on the old A11, which had a filling station which dates back to at least the 1930s beside it. A malthouse behind it became a garage in the 1950s, and is the petrol station which is there today.
The canopy and shop kiosk were added by Jet in 1973.
When the A11 was upgraded in 1993, this narrow section of the road was by-passed. The filling station now sits on the old road, which meets the new road after a short distance.
The site went on to become branded Texaco until summer 2016, when it was sold to Harvest Energy. Harvest Energy later teamed up with TotalEnergies in Autumn 2021 and rebranded to site to TotalEnergies.
There are plans to install two InstaVolt electric vehicle charging points here.
