I know, service stations are usually regarded as the worse place to be, overpriced and overcrowded. However I think Stafford is a bit special. When our daughter was at university in Lancaster, Stafford was a regular stop on the long trek up the M5 and M6 from Somerset. The north bound side is, it has to be said, superior to the south bound side. To show you why I think so highly of Stafford here is are some pictures of it.
