Shop Doctor: In the surgery this month - Chatham Road Service Station, Maidstone, Kent

LOCATION: My target, the Chatham Road Service Station, is located just south of junction six on the M20 and north of Maidstone on the A229. The site is on a service road and if travelling south, drivers must go right round a busy roundabout and come back on themselves. It was okay for me as I wanted to visit the site, but it's a bit of a hassle for local drivers. To make it worthwhile, it needs to be special.

Shop Doctor: In the surgery this month - Hill's Retail Redditch Service Station, Worcestershire

LOCATION: Hill's Retail Redditch Service Station is close to the new town estate of Winyates, in the middle of a large residential area. Situated on the B4497, it is also very close to a large Bristol Street Motors site and a Morrisons superstore that sells fuel.

Shop Doctor: In the surgery this month - Micheldever Service Station, Cocksford Down, Popham, Hampshire

LOCATION: Micheldever Service Station is located on the A303 eastbound at Popham and was, until recently, an Esso 'On the Run'. It is now one of the growing numbers of Euro Garage sites in the south. There are the usual 'service station ahead' signs on the A303, but the service station pole is not visible until drivers are on the slip road up to the site.
