It opened on 23 October 1970, operated by Mobil. The contract was deliberately given to a fuel company as traffic levels on this section of the M6 were expected to be low, so initially only a forecourt would be required. That leaseholder could then decide when and who would build the main facilities.
In May 2012 and August 2011, Visit England rated the services as 3 stars.
In 2006 the services were graded 3/5 by Holiday Which?, who liked the individuality of the products for sale.
in 2005 and 2006, the services won a five star loo award.
