Dull, with a Side Order of Horrible
So what do you do at the worst services in the UK? Reports I’ve read say that Sandbach Services on the M6 in Cheshire are the worst motorway in the country. And that’s saying a lot. I’ve been to some pretty bad motorway services in the UK. Older ones tend to be bland, dirty, and lacking in services. At least now a few are getting upgraded to have restaurants you might want to eat in, and toilets that aren’t a biohazard. But Sandbach, in 2010, is not one of those flashy new ones.
So when you’re there, what you can do is to turn your bike round, buy a posh coffee, collect the caches, and move on.
There isn’t much to say except that all the above activities were achieved with a minimum of fuss. The main danger was overlooking by other punters. Both are in prominent locations. The two caches there are called M6 Sandbach Services Southbound and Motorway Mayhem M6 Sandbach Services Northbound , and both are by The Bignall Boppers.
That’s all there is to say, except that they were done on a day trip to Lytham from Milton Keynes, and Sandbach was the worst location of the three. But not by very much, if I’m honest. Sandbach Services at least has the advantage that you can drive out of it quickly on a motorway.
Hopefully the photo sums it up. Have I convinced you yet that I didn’t like the place?
