If you happen to head up the M6 towards the Lake Dustrict, you will no doubt spot a magnificent 1960s hexagonal concrete tower, the sign you are at Forton Services. In celebration of this iconic motorway stopover, The Modernist Society has produced the equally cool Forton Services mugs.

Sadly you can’t get a cup of tea at the top of the tower anymore (if only that would happen again), but you can get a brew in a mug featuring an illustration of The Pennine Tower (that’s the official name) by Matthew Steele in a mustard yellow or a dove grey, each sold in a matching gift box.

Just £8.50 gets you one online.
