Newport Pagnell Services is a motorway service station between junctions 14 and 15 of the M1 motorway near Newport Pagnell and Milton Keynes in north Buckinghamshire. It is owned and operated by Welcome Break.
Newport Pagnell Services were the second service station to be opened in the UK, but as the Watford Gap services were originally only for trucks, Newport Pagnell was the first to open for all traffic. It opened on 26 November 1959, the birthday of Charles Forte, Baron Forte. Like the motorway, the site was designed by Sir Owen Williams.
