Aycliffe & District Bus Preservation Society

110 Fewston Close
Newton Aycliffe DL5 7HF


The North East of England has a rich and varied industrial heritage. Public transport is part of that heritage and has affected everyday life in this northern region. The preservation of selected local vintage buses is an opportunity to bring the public at large the transport of yesteryear - an opportunity to ride, to touch, smell and to see that which has now left the modern day scene.
