Keele Services on the 1969 OS Quarter Inch map.

Keele services is located on the M6 between Junctions 15 and 16 to the southwest of Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The services opened in 1963, and was originally operated by Forte. It is named after the nearby village of Keele, and is approximately one mile from Keele University.

It is unusual in having signage within the central reservation when heading southbound along M6.

The local access route connects to the Class III road C119 Three Mile Lane; and was historically very busy as it was the nearest access from the motorway network to Keele University - however this is no longer possible due to barriers.
