Trivia and History

Looking at a BP forecourt with a flat roof.
The old forecourt roof, pictured in 2010.

A short distance south of here is the notorious Black Cat Roundabout, which has its own unsigned service area on the opposite side of the road.

The site had an AJ's restaurant, but this was sold in 1995 to McDonald's, apparently because of the proposal to replace more of the A1 with a motorway, which meant that the restaurant would need a wealthy owner to fight for it to included in the plan. McDonald's demolished the building and replaced it with a new-build drive-thru the following year.

The forecourt was formerly branded Mobil, and changed to BP in the 1990s. The filling station was later operated by The Carsley Group. It was rebuilt in 2013, with the new zig-zag roof replacing a long, thin one.

The site formerly included a Londis store. This was changed to Applegreen branding when they purchased the the site in 2018.

In November 2018, Applegreen purchased a significant stake of Welcome Break. One of the trade-offs of the purchase was that Wyboston would eventually be re-branded Welcome Break, and adjusted to reflect the rest of their estate.

Welcome Break officially took control during the summer of 2021 and refitted the shop, rearranging the layout inside. The Subway store then closed in December 2021 and was replaced by a new Greggs store, which opened on 11 February 2022.
