The present system, installed in about 1900, even with its later (35 year old) gas boiler, can never achieve severe winter performance even after five or six hours operation. It is known that the old pipes and radiators will soon start to give serious trouble. There is clear evidence of advanced corrosion which could at any time lead to serious water damage in the building.

The nave floor is of stone slabs with a herring-bone ceramic block pattern in the pew areas. Some blocks have become broken and loose or are missing, forming a trip hazard. It is not possible to replace them, so a filler compound has been used. Wood runners in the floor have some beetle infestation.

St. Helen's church Trowell has a history record as far back as AD801 when permission was given to build a wooden church on the site. In 1180 the present chancel was built in stone and would have been the whole church. The nave, aisles, raised clerestory and tower were added in stages much later. Since 1180 there has never been a gap of more than 150 years without some major alteration or addition in response to the contemporary requirements of the day.

When it opened, operators Mecca Leisure insisted that visitors thought of it not as a service area but as a "village". The site was entirely themed around Robin Hood. This was all removed when Granada took over. Much of the specialised stock had caused Mecca Leisure trouble as they were not approved for sale on motorways at the time.

As a safety trial, Mecca trialled a car wash here, but Granada removed it.

In 2005 and again in 2006, the services won a five-star loo award.

We have moved forward as a council, our motto is “Independence and Self Help”. We aim to serve all of our residents to the best of our ability, to communicate with them, to listen to them, and to act in their best interests. Residents are encouraged to attend our ‘open forums’, which are held before every full council meeting.  We also arrange special meetings whenever they are required.

Use with care. Outdated surveys have been included for interest only.

Between those two significant dates we have not stood still! The village has expanded in terms of houses. We have a parish hall and a church hall, where residents can enjoy a variety of activities.
