Sprotbrough services would have been a service area on the A1(M) Doncaster Bypass. It has a distinctly 1960s feel to it, being very small and with the motorway being in a cutting, well below where the services would have been.
Today the site is used as a works unit for storing materials and maintenance vehicles. There is an operational 'secret exit' connecting with Melton Road.
Barnsdale Bar services are of a similar age, if not older than these services, and are situated only 8 miles to the north. For a while there weren't any services for miles to the south, but now Moto's Blyth services are 11 miles to the south. Woodall on the M1 is 17 miles away.
