As you approach Wellingborough, from Northampton, on the A4500, 1/4 mile before a village called Wilby, is a layby, where I have seen vans parked up for the night.
I have never tried it myself, though.
It is on a funny single lane dual carriageway, and I HAVE got that right!

From the M1 turn onto the A14 and turn off and left at the first junction.
There is a set back layby after a couple of miles.
Never overnighted there but frequently stop with a truck

usually a layby with a truck or two on are safe bets, but then again we have no probs stopping on one (the layby i mean)

On the A45 Eastbound, just after the turning for Great Billing and Billing Aquadrome, is an Esso garage with a free overnight truck stop behind. Apart from the 24hr garage, there is also a transport cafe called Scoffers on the site. Quite secure as the truckstop is not visible from the carriageway and well used by truckers. Unfortunately there is no truckstop on the Westbound carriageway, just a garage,
