If you have photographs of the M1 and Leicester Forest East Services under construction, or photographs from the late 1960s and 1970s when the services were in their pomp, then please do get in touch with us. Or simply if you have recollections of early motorway cruising or the services (perhaps you helped to build them or later worked there) that you want to share. Were you a signatory to the petition which changed the route of the M1? Were you actively involved in campaigning for the eventual route it took or one of its alternatives? Were you a waiter at the famous Captain’s Table, the restuarant over the carriageway? Or did you make a special journey to eat there? Can you remember what was on the menu? Were you there in the 1970s and witnessed the Grunwick Pickets meeting at the services? Were you one of those who were effected by the ‘red desert’ resulting from dust generated from the widening of the M1 carriageway in the late 1980s? Have you encountered anyone famous at the services? Whatever your story, we would love to hear from you.
