Members are very welcome to get involved in any part of the running of the museum (which may include a bit of manual work - such as pushing a 1913 Leyland double-decker around the compond), as illustrated here.

You do not have to know anything about vehicle restoration. We always have a need for people to work in our shop, the cafe and to look after the grounds (so gardners are welcome!). Even washing and cleaning the vehicles is a great help - and loads of fun.

We're a small, friendly team and appreciate new helpers!

JVF 528 v2

The petrol engined Bedford OB was a classic 29-seat mini-coach of the 1940s and 1950s. In total Bedford built over 14,000 of these little coaches. Many had service lives well into the 1970s, so reliable were they.

Ours (pictuired left) registration JVF 528, dates from 1949 and was new to Bensley coaches of Martham.

AEC produced the first 'Reliance' under floor bus and coach chassis in 1953 and thousands of them were manufactured at their Southall factory, until production ceased in 1979.

Our ex-Chiltern Queens example (pictured below left) registration EUD 256K, dates from 1972 and has a reasonably rare Plaxton 'Derwent' bus body. Plaxton (of Scarborough) was and remains, primarily a builder of coach bodies.

Our unique 1960 Morris FF band bus (pictured below), was built exclusively for the use of the Morris factory staff brass band. It has a raised seating section towards the back, so that the rear luggage boot could be extra large (to accommodate all the bands instruments).
