Staples Corner is named after the Staples Mattress factory, which was at the road junction from 1926 to 1986.
On 11 April 1992, a Provisional IRA 100 lb van bomb devastated Staples Corner.
The format of the Staples Corner junction was modified during the reconstruction works necessitated by the bombings. An additional sliproad onto the M1 from the east was added to remove the need for traffic coming from that direction to travel around the roundabout to access the motorway.
