The lake at the front.

The services were designed by Blue Boar but built by Roadchef, as they were sold whilst the services were under construction. They used to have an SOS Fashion outlet here but it has since closed.

Granada originally proposed a southbound service area opposite the northbound one, but for some reason it didn't go ahead. To really confuse matters, according to Stafford Borough Council the services are called "Granada Service Station Southbound", and the postcode supplied by Roadchef is wrong and actually points to the northbound services. Very odd!

The services are deliberately set back from the road by 67 metres to allow for future widening of the M6.

The forecourt here is operated by Euro Garages and a Subway is due to open here soon.
