TEN vintage buses brought nostalgic travel to the roads in and around Newton Abbot on Sunday, September 3rd as the Devon General Society recreated local bus routes of the 1960s.

Free bus services ran from Highweek Way to Bovey Tracey, Denbury and Lawes Bridge, with open top buses on the route to Teignmouth. There were also trips to the nearby villages of Bishopsteignton, Daccombe, Hennock, Ideford and Stoneyhill.

Paul Jenkins, Secretary of the Devon General Society, said ‘We were delighted with the turnout for our event, with many buses departing with full loads.

‘We would like to thank everyone who travelled on our buses, the bus owners, and our great team of volunteers who made it all happen.

‘We also appreciate the support we received from Newton Abbot Town Council, Teignbridge District Council, and Stagecoach South West.

‘We hope everyone had an enjoyable day experiencing bus travel as it used to be.’
