Skipton - 10th Yorkshire Dales Bus Running Day

11th Oct 2015.


The Aire Valley Transport Group put on a bus running day based on Skipton Bus Station and with a static display at the long term car park near the canal barge tour terminus.


A good turn out of buses around 40 in the programme. Ribble, Blackpool, Blackburn, Chester, Chesterfield, Rawtenstall, Leeds, Bradford and many more including several towing and recovery trucks. The weather was good and the bus runs were well full travelling to Gargrave, Rylstone, Halton, Bolton Abbey, Ilkley, Bradley, Kildwick, Earby Carleton.

A bus museum in a Yelloway Coach was interesting. Yelloway celebrating 100 years since the first service run by Holts Brothers of Rochdale.
