Charnock Richard was the first service station to open on the M6 motorway in 1963, and the fifth across Britain’s highways, situated between Wigan and Preston.

To cater to both directions of travel, the restaurant is housed in the concrete bridge spanning the M6 for diners to enjoy views of the road.

Charnock Richard was designed by Terence Verity who trained as an architect before moving into the film industry.

Verity was the art director of films including “Young Wives’ Tale” with Audrey Hepburn, and “Let’s Be Happy” with Tony Martin and Vera-Ellen.

His last film as art director was the classic comedy “School For Scoundrels” before he decided to return to architecture.

Inspired by Mid-Century print techniques and the graphic vernacular of the time, Art & Hue’s collection of stylish pop art prints interprets the Modernist era of Mid-Century motoring.

Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.

Part of the collection of stylish pop art prints inspired by Mid-Century Motoring, featuring Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).
