Trivia & History

Following the relative success of Westmorland's Tebay northbound services, in 1986 the company opened the complementary J38 Truckstop. Aimed at passing commercial vehicle traffic it provided a more tailored offering to this traffic. As the services are provided at the Tebay junction just south of the existing northbound services, it provided the first service area provision for southbound traffic.

Today these services provide a popular stop of for HGV traffic but also provides general traffic joining the M6 at Tebay for a journey south (a popular route from the North East of England to Lancashire and wider destinations on the M6) access to the Tebay services offering, otherwise unavailable without a significant detour.
