Clacket Lane services is a motorway service station on the M25 motorway midway between junctions 5 and 6, in Surrey, United Kingdom, adjacent to the parish borders between Limpsfield, Surrey and Westerham, Kent,[1] a small village and a town respectively. The services are owned by RoadChef.

Clacket Lane services are one of the largest and busiest services on the UK motorway network serving traffic on the extremely busy southern stretch of the M25 London orbital motorway, and traffic to and from the coastal ports and the Channel Tunnel. They are named after a road which passes over the motorway nearby.[2]

Three other services serve the motorway:

History[edit]

Service stations at the site were first proposed in 1972. On a planning application that was superseded by the final application the service stations were to be named Titsey Wood after the forest that surrounds the site. The stations opened in 1993.

During construction of the sites artifacts from Roman Britain were found, specifically from a disused Roman road and are now displayed at the service station.[3]
