Located just off the M6 at Junction 38, J.38 Services was created specifically for truckers and coach drivers travelling either on the M6 or to and from the North East on the A685.

Just like its sister site, Tebay Services just one mile further north, J.38 Services has established a good reputation for friendly staff and good, homemade food. However instead of farmshops, J.38 Services has been built with long distance professional drivers in mind and includes:
