Planned services in the south-eastern corner of M11 J10, aiming to cover the northern end of the M11 but curiously close to Birchanger Green. Cambridge eventually did the job.

It was designed by the same architect as Norton Canes and the also-unbuilt Meon Valley.

It went to appeal, with the appellants arguing that people wouldn't use the new Cambridge services because the A14 is notoriously difficult to join.

When the M11 was originally built, services were considered but rejected by Duxford Airfield - the site was earmarked for development and too close to the A505 junction.
