Strictly speaking Worsted Lodge isn't an official A11 service station, but it's advertised from the road for its "parking, payphone and petrol station". A burger van often parks outside.
No parking is available at the filling station but a lay-by is located at the end of the sliproad 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. 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, the filling station was by-passed meaning the filling station now sits on the old alignment of the A11.
The site went onto 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 2 InstaVolt electric vehicle charging points here.
