Rivington services when they were operated by First Motorway Services under the name 'Bolton West'
|Previous operator(s):||Kenning Motor Group, Rank, Pavilion (formerly Granada) and First Motorway Services|
|Previous name(s):||Anderton services; Rivington services; Bolton West services|
Built in 1971, under the original name of Anderton Services, they were later renamed Rivington Services, and then Bolton West Services. In June 2011, they reverted to the name Rivington Services after being acquired by Euro Garages from First.
In the summer of 2009, the service area was acquired by Blackburn based Euro Garages. After years of criticism, during which it was dubbed the worst service station in the country, plans were made to demolish the existing buildings and replace them with a smaller main building, petrol station and other facilities and amenities.
