Trivia and Design

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 both 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.

Electric vehicle charging hubs were added to both sides in late 2022. Moto are now intending to add drive thru Greggs and KFC units to the service area.
