Trivia & History

Owned by many operators over the years, starting with Mobil, but mainly the site has been developed by BP as part of its corporate truck-stop business, which BP later sold as whole business to Nightowl Truckstops.

In 1993, a company named Barton Park Ltd applied to make it a full motorway service station.

There is a petrol station next to a hill. The hill has a building which houses a cafe area, toilets and showers.

Moto were brought into ownership of Barton Park, when Nightowl Truckstops went into receivership. As there was uncertainty surrounding the future impact of the A1 upgrading on their existing small site at Scotch Corner, Moto saw the opportunity to move the services to the Barton Park site if Scotch Corner ever had to be closed.

Following their acquisition of Poplar 2000 at Lymm, Moto began to apply some Poplar 2000 branding here, such as on the signage where it can still be seen. However, this was stopped in favour of Moto corporate branding.

Given the upgrade has now been suspended and final plans saw no material change to Scotch Corner's operations Barton Park has been maintained as a simple truck stop. It also makes up for the lack of HGV access at Scotch Corner.
