Trivia and History
It replaces an old (1960s) petrol station. There is a Premier Inn & Beefeater the other side of the roundabout but these are not signed or easily accessed from the services.
Despite not being signed from the M6 and not qualifying to be, the M6's electronic signs are still used to warn of problems at this service area.
