An odd pairing at the quieter end of the M1. Woolley Edge northbound is a little short of space, while Woolley Edge southbound comes with a large field to walk around.

Trivia and Design

Woolley Edge services field.
The southbound services overlooks a field.

The Woolley Edge is actually a viewpoint in nearby Woolley.

Due to the steep hills in the area, the north-facing slip roads are very long.

A railway tunnel and coal seams run beneath the services, which made designing it difficult. There is a railway ventilation shaft next to the southbound filling station.

Granada signed a 25 year lease on the land in 2000. The rent is approximately £2.5m per year. In August 2014, Orchard Street paid £35.1m for the land.

An electric vehicle charging hub is currently being built on both sides, with both due to open in late 2022.
