Remember calling in at the motorway services M6 Knutsford for my 3/4hr break during the early morning 1am a few years ago when they were renovating the place, first stop was the toilets which were portacabins at the time , went in ,the place was exceptionally clean, even jars of flowers on the wash stands, nice idea I thought, done the business and was washing my hands at the basin when 2 elderly women walked in, well I don`t know who was more surprised, them or me, after a quick explaination I departed rather quickly-----the toilets were the LADIES, no wonder the daffodils were on show---Flowers for wagon drivers, no I don`t think so!!!!!!!!!!

When coaching, from Manchester to the East coast we always stopped at Hartshead Moor Services. Never stopped on the return journey, until one evening somebody wanted the toilet so quick stop, I thought I would join the rest straight into the Gents only West bound its the Ladies whoops

I am not so sure, these excuses seem a bit thin, sounds like a bit of voyeurism to me. Ha ha ha

Oh I don't know.
It would make a change seeing women having a p*** instead of taking the p***.

Well, not from personal experience you understand, but some people do seem to make these little excursions into the wrong rest rooms, without a great deal of trouble. Ha ha ha .

I'm orf now, whilst I am safe.

I used the Star Lesmahagow quite regular,never went in Normans but I remember the one at Aberford.Not been up the A1 for donkeys years so most will have gone now,but I think the one at Quernhow is still going.
Back in Scotland did you ever use the one at Chapelhall near Airdrie or the Silver Link Kincardine Bridge?

Chris.
