Folkestone services (Kent)
Stop 24 services is a motorway service station on the M20 motorway at Westenhanger, seven miles from Folkestone in Kent, England. They are the second to be built on the motorway and were opened in 2007.
The services are found off Junction 11. They contain a petrol station, parking for both cars and lorries, a number of shops including W H Smith.
A lorry park with 82 parking spaces and customs clearance facilities provided by Channel Ports Ltd has operated on the site since 2011.
Junctions 10 to 13 of the M20 motorway were opened in 1981. Prior to the construction of the services, the proposed site was subjected to an archaeological investigation. This was because the area was close to known archaeological sites. Shards of pottery dating from the 1st–4th centuries were discovered and there may have been a Roman settlement between the current site of the services and line of the nearby Roman road from Lympne to Canterbury.
Stop 24 Folkestone services has no on-site hotel. The closest is located at Roadchef Maidstone services.
The Petrol station at stop 24 is a shell station.
