Brand New Book


The book centres around a Sunday in October 1967 when the author and his family visited this bustling north Yorkshire market town. As he says you would expect Sunday to be a quiet day but being at the junction of the A65 and the A59 it was a busy place with four bus companies operating from the town’s Waller Hill Bus Station. Three companies were based elsewhere in the town and another was just four miles away at Gargrave. On the Sunday the author visited therefore a plethora of stage routes were running. In addition to these stage routes there were a number of seasonal routes. The book paints this complex picture with lots of detail of operators, routes and of course the buses all illustrated with captioned photographs from the author’s own collection and other enthusiast and society sources.


The book is illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs of the vehicles themselves. There is a price sticker on the rear side cover
