Kept 30 times
Britain's first long distance motorway, the London - Birmingham motorway M1 after being opened by The Minister of Transport. This picture was taken near the Luton spur.
Remembered more than a year ago
I remember watching the opening on the TV News as a child. How motorways have changed our lives, but I don't like them!

My uncle had a V.W, camper van and he would take 13 of us out on trips. On the way home to Brum after a day out at Billing Aquadrome near Northampton we did a detour so that we could drive along the newly opened M1,it was wierd but amazing,i remember feeling excited and optomistic about the future. I was 12 -13 at the time and i loved to travel anywhere. Angela

I remember a boy at school telling the rest of us that his dad had driven him along a bit of the new M1.
