Trivia and History
Lakeland Investments sold this truckstop to BP in January 1988, along with a sister site at Rugby. BP developed both sites to create 'BP Truckstops' in 1989.
BP later sold the site to Nightowl in 2001, who were later acquired themselves by the Stobart Group in 2013. Stobart wanted to slim down the business, and Penrith was sold and is now independently operated.
Local hauliers A.W. Jenkinson say they chose to take on the truckstop to ensure they were able to access fuel and parking facilities.
