The map icons point to the entrance to the service area from the road. The letters refer to the direction of travel. If the site has two public entrances, both are shown, even if the second isn't well-known.


The service area is signed from the eastbound side of the road, a mile after the roundabout at Cartgate.

Access from the westbound side is technically possible, it's just indirect and not signposted. You need to carefully take the right turn for Bearley (after the service area). Take the first right and follow the lane into the service area.

Directions and distances are provided as a guide based on the information that was available at the time of writing. Always obey the signs and markings provided on the ground.
