Under The Microscope

One of the early proposed M1 services.

In a new feature, Motorway Services Online highlights a couple of the motorway network's oldest service stations, and places them under the microscope for a detailed analysis of how it came to be.

Most of the information we know has spent years locked up in dusty archives, buried under much less interesting information. As we uncover more, more pages will be added and more detail on each page.

Currently, some of these pages will have more recent history, while others will have the full story. Obviously some service areas aren't that old and don't have much history to offer, no matter how much detail we go into. But what information we find we will share - and we're always on the lookout for more.
