I'm picking up Mrs LR from a sudden visit to her mother (who is ill). I was planning to return tomorrow but am returning later today to avoid tomorrow's traffic.it's a bank holiday weekend. i am avoiding the transport network. there is an absence of traffic in my front room, and i'm sure there is some weather out there.
Used to stay in the hotel there years ago for work, lovely place.View attachment 105691 I'm at Tebay service (southbound) on the M6.
Traffic moderate. Weather fair but windy.
These are my favourite motorway services. There's none anywhere in these islands to compare, in my view. (Though if we include A roads, the Ralia reststop on the A9 beats it for scenery and food).
Ooh yes, with websites and everything!Another vote for tebay...
Gloucester services are run by the same people who own tebay and it shows.
Yeah, ok, you've got me - I'm Kebabking, and I've never touched a woman...Ooh yes, with websites and everything!

The southbound side is better IMO (you can drive out by the hotel onto a local road and swap sides )
What were you doing, delivering sandwiches to Field Marshal Haig and his staff as they planned the next big offensive?The southbound side is better IMO (you can drive out by the hotel onto a local road and swap sides )
I'm back home now, but I was parked here earlier (just to the left of this shot):
My car looked slightly out of place
Would love to have done the first bit. I've never got hammered in Manchester before (though I have been hammered in Manchester, but the hammering was accomplished elsewhere).Turn around and head back to Manchester, so I can get you hammered and tie you to a lamppost in a compromising position.
