Trivia & History

Barton Park truckstop is based in a former quarry site. It was purchased by Mobil, and BP then grew it as part of their corporate truckstop business.

In 1993, a company named Barton Park Ltd applied to make it a full motorway service station, one of many plans in the Barton area.

BP's business was sold to Nightowl Truckstops, who later went in to receivership. It was then purchased by Moto.

This site includes a filling station next to a hill. The hill has a building which houses a café area, toilets and showers.

Moto Expansion

As there was uncertainty surrounding the future impact of the A1 upgrading on their existing small site at Scotch Corner, Moto saw the opportunity to move the services to the Barton Park site if Scotch Corner ever had to be closed.

Following their acquisition of Poplar 2000 at Lymm, Moto began to apply some Poplar 2000 branding to Barton Park. However, this was stopped in favour of Moto corporate branding.

Given that Scotch Corner won't be closing, Moto now appear to be using Barton Park to make up for the facilities missing there, operating the two as a pair.
