Welcome to Auto Shenanigans! In this episode of Secrets of the Motorway, we will be exploring the M69, a 16-mile motorway that runs between Coventry and Leicester. Join us as we uncover some interesting facts about this motorway and the areas surrounding it.
- The M69 was completed in 1977 and has two junctions.
- The start of the M69 is at The Ansty Interchange, where a new road was built connecting the motorway junction to the newly created Ansty Commercial Park.
- Rolls Royce inherited the site in 1966 and used it as one of their main engine manufacturing plants. Today, they have a workforce of around 600 people on site.
- The M69 cuts through the sight of an old airfield, now known as Gamecock Barracks, on the left.
- The Junction 2 to Coventry extension was completed seven months after the first section of the M69 was built, so there are no slip roads here.
- The Stony Stanton Gas Distribution Center is located near the M69 and is operated by Calor Gas.
- Croft Quarry, near the M69, has been in operation since the early 1900s and is designated as a site of scientific special interest.
- The Whetstone Interchange was originally a far simpler layout, and there were plans to have a completely different interchange design here.
The M69 is a motorway that has some interesting history and facts surrounding it, from the old airfields to the gas distribution center and the Croft Quarry. It is also a motorway that has undergone changes over the years, with different plans and ideas for interchanges and slip roads. Despite this, it remains an important link between Coventry and Leicester, providing easy access to the M1 motorway.
M69 - Globular Cluster - Deep Sky Videos
In this article, we will be discussing NGC 6637, also known as M69, a globular cluster located in the constellation of Sagittarius. We will explore its unique properties and the insights it provides into the formation and evolution of galaxies.
Properties of NGC 6637:
- NGC 6637 is a small and faint object, measuring only about a tenth of the size of the moon as seen from Earth.
- Despite its small size, NGC 6637 is incredibly rich in metals, which are elements heavier than hydrogen or helium and are created through stellar nucleosynthesis.
- The metallicity of NGC 6637 is measured by determining the amount of iron present in the cluster, which is over 10 times higher than that of globular clusters of a similar age.
- This high metallicity is unusual for a globular cluster and can be explained by its location in the bulge of our galaxy, which has a higher density of metals and type 2 supernova explosions.
- Studying globular clusters like NGC 6637 is important for understanding stellar evolution and the makeup of our galaxy.
Insights into Galaxy Formation:
- The bulge of our galaxy is an important but still poorly understood region, and globular clusters like NGC 6637 provide insights into its formation and evolution.
- The age of NGC 6637, determined by plotting the V magnitude of its stars against their color, is about 14 billion years, indicating that the bulge formed early and quickly became highly metallic.
- The formation of the bulge is thought to have occurred through either mergers or instability in the galactic disc, but neither explanation can fully account for the high metallicity of stars in the bulge.
NGC 6637, or M69, is a fascinating globular cluster that provides important insights into the formation and evolution of galaxies, particularly the bulge of our own Milky Way. Its high metallicity and age suggest that the bulge formed early and quickly became enriched with metals, but the exact mechanisms of its formation remain a mystery. Further study of globular clusters like NGC 6637 will be crucial for unlocking the secrets of our galaxy and the universe as a whole.

Secrets Of The Motorway - M1
Welcome to Auto Shenanigans! In this new series called Secrets of the Motorway, we will explore some of the interesting facts and features that make up our motorway network. In today's episode, we will take a look at the M1 motorway and discover some of the hidden and forgotten features that it has to offer.
Features of the M1:
1. Abandoned Slip Road: A small slip road used to join the M1 through to the A1 and A41. It closed following the completion of the Staples Corner junction.
2. No Junction 3: The Sterling Link was planned, but it was never completed. The idea of building the link roads and creating junction 3 was revisited in the early 90s but never materialized.
3. OGM1: The oldest section of the M1, built in 1959, runs from junction 5 up to junction 18.
4. Hemel Hempstead Explosion: A massive explosion and fuel fire that occurred in 2005 at the Bunsfield Depot, just as you pass junction 8 for Hemel Hempstead.
5. Ghost Slip Roads: Locations where the service stations were planned, but they never ended up being built. Examples of ghost slip roads can be found between junctions 23 and 24 and at Tib Shelf Services.
6. The Underpass of Graffiti: Situated between junctions 39 and 40 on the M1, this underpass sits in Horbury near Wakefield and is covered in graffiti.
These are just a few of the interesting features that make up the M1 motorway. It's amazing how many hidden gems are hiding in plain sight. We hope you enjoyed this episode of Secrets of the Motorway and don't forget to hit that subscribe button so you don't miss any of our future episodes!
Secrets of The Motorway - M42
Hello friends! How the devil are you? Have you had a good week? Welcome to AutoShenanigans! My name is John, and thank you very much for joining me for another exciting episode of Secrets of the Motorway.
Today, we'll be exploring what secrets the M42 is hiding, starting just south of Birmingham at the Catshill Interchange. From there, we'll be heading east along the M42 and then heading north a little bit up the M42 to find the motorway's end.
Let's get started!
1. The Catshill Interchange
- The M5 and the M42 come together in this T-shaped junction.
- The original layout was a simple south-facing fork, but this was later changed.
- The Lydiate Link was never built, but slip roads were added to the Catshill Interchange.
2. Secret Junctions
- On the southbound side between Junctions 1 and 2, there is a secret junction that provides a dedicated entrance and exit for the Bronze Grove Ambulance Hub.
- There is also a secret access road for authorised vehicles only between Junctions 3A and 7, with three access roads installed along with the M42 and two more with the M6 toll road.
3. The SEPCAT Jaguar
- The SEPCAT Jaguar GR1 XX739 is a military aircraft that is now owned by Delta Force Paintball.
- It is located near Junctions 3A and 4 and can be seen when driving south.
4. Hard Shoulder Running
- Hard shoulder running on smart motorways has been introduced across the motorway network in recent years.
- This section of the M42 between Junctions 3A and 7 has been used for trialling the scheme.
5. Bickenhill Interchange
- Junction 6 is also known as the Bickenhill Interchange, where the A45 meets the M42.
- The A45 goes over the road on a bridge on the east side of the junction and goes under the road on the west side, which is the only example of this arrangement in England.
6. Kingsbury Oil Depots
- The Kingsbury Oil Depots are located between Junctions 9 and 10 and are the largest inland oil depots in the UK.
- They are operated by SR Warwickshire Oil Storage, and Valero Energy, BP and Shell also have operations based here.
7. Gold Leaf Buried Sunlight
- Gold Leaf Buried Sunlight is a controversial art installation located near the Pooley Park Nature Reserve.
- It cost £100,000 and consists of a 40-foot gold tower made of thin metal sheets that are meant to represent silver birch tree leaves.
So there you have it, the secrets of the M42! We've covered everything from secret junctions to abandoned planes, oil depots, and controversial art installations.
