Footbridge over the M1 at Northampton Services
Footbridge over the M1 at Northampton Services
The services are about 4 miles south of Northampton town centre, at the Rothersthorpe Interchange (M1/A43). When opened in 1978, the service area was named "Rothersthorpe" and was located between junctions 15 and 16. However, in 1991 the Blisworth Bypass on the A43 was opened, this linked into the M1 at the Rothersthorpe site, creating a new junction (15A) surrounding the service area.

The footbridge was taken out of use in 2002 when the site was redeveloped, though it still remains in place.
M1 Motorway
The M1 is a north–south motorway connecting London to Leeds, where it joins the A1(M) near Aberford. It was the first motorway to be completed in the United Kingdom.
The motorway is 193 miles long and was constructed in four phases. Most of the motorway was opened between 1959 and 1968 but the southern end was extended in 1977 and the northern end was extended in 1999.
