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.
Moto brought into ownership, of Barton Park, when Nightowl Truckstops went into receivership. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the future impact of the A1 upgrading on its existing small site at Scotch Corner. While plans drawn up for the widening by the Highways Agency included a number of alternatives associated with the A1(M) / A66 interchange which could have caused issues with Scotch Corner's future. Moto saw the opportunity to move the services to the Barton Park site if Scotch Corner had to be closed.
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.
