The fourth motorway service station to open on the M6, and the ninth to open in Britain, Forton Services on the M6 near Lancaster was initially run by the Rank Organisation, most commonly associated with films.

The space-age hexagonal tower opened in 1965 with a restaurant and sun deck at the top, but tower access was to end in 1989.

Designed by the architect Thomas Bennett’s firm T.P. Bennett & Sons, the project was led by Bill Galloway and it’s rumoured that many people, including The Beatles, drove for miles to experience the high life with far-reaching views of the Pennines, Morecambe Bay, and the Lake District.

Named The Pennine tower, it achieved Grade II listed status in 2012.

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).
