Knutsford is an old building which has an unusual take on the bridge idea.

There is very little parking provided for HGVs here. Some road signs say HGVs are not permitted to park here; confusingly, some of those have now been taken down while some of the signs remain up. Regardless, in the northbound HGV park, there is a sign saying that the area is for "HGVs only", and that lorries should continue on to Lymm Truckstop.

The stand-up comedy show 'Rhod Gilbert and the Award-Winning Mince Pie' is based entirely on his experience here, although he talks about service stations in general.

The northbound side has two female toilet blocks: an older one underneath the bridge and a newer one by the hotel.

On the 9 December 2004 an M&S Simply Food opened here - Moto's fourth at the time. The large restaurant was later shrank down to make space for Greggs and Costa. Together with the M&S, this makes up the bridge-based food court.

A Costa Drive Thru opened on the northbound side in Spring 2019. A southbound one was due to join its counterpart but the plans were later withdrawn.

The Rear Access here leads on to the classified road A5033, and has been known to be used to divert traffic off the M6.
