Rivington Services, M61
Also known as Bolton West, between junctions 6 and 7.
Rivington Services has been re-launched following a multi-million pound investment programme. It used to be a bit of a dump.
"The old northbound and southbound sites have been demolished, creating one of the UK's leading motorway services facilities with brand new forecourts, amenity buildings and facilities. The site has been completely transformed and now you'll find premium brands such as Starbucks, Subway, Spar and Burger King in the glazed foodcourt area, brand new convenience stores, a wide range of quality facilities and carefully landscaped grounds offering relaxing outdoor dining". Well, that's what it says on their website.
