On Caenby Corner roundabout is a filling station with shop and separate coffee shop, a private residence and the closed Moncks Arms hotel with adjacent transport cafe and lorry park. The hotel had for many years been derelict, but in 2007 there were plans to redevelop it.[2] Despite the re-cladding to the outside of the building, the hotel has never re-opened.
