Enjoy free rides on vintage buses out of Grantham over heritage weekend




Lincolnshire's 'Tillings' green buses will be back on the roads of Grantham on Saturday (September 14).

The buses will be on display at Grantham Bus Station as part of Heritage Open Days thanks to Centrebus.

The buses have been provided by Lincolnshire Vintage Vehicle Society (LVVS) and will be operating a free service on route 1 from Grantham bus station to Barkston via Syston, returning via Belton.

First departure from Grantham Bus Station will be at 10.30am and the last departure at 2.50pm. The journey time is approximately 25 minutes each way.

Travel on the buses is free, but spaces cannot be guaranteed on each journey. Dogs (other than assistance dogs) cannot be carried.

LVVS says bus workers, present and past, and their families are welcome and are invited to take along any old photographs, memorabilia and memories of the 'Lincolnshire' buses or other local operators.

A spokesman for LVVS said: "Please be aware that most of our historic vehicles were not designed with modern levels of access in mind, and do not have space for unfolded wheelchairs (or baby buggies/push-chairs), but our conductors will offer what help they can.

"We will make every effort to run the vehicles and services listed, but reserve the right to substitute or withdraw vehicles / journeys if circumstances dictate."
