Sponsorship Opportunities

Northampton Transport Heritage was formed in September 2017 to secure the future of three former Northampton Corporation Transport Daimler double deckers. Two of these classic buses – 154 (ANH 154) and 267 (JVV 267G) – are in regular use whilst the third – 197 (DNH 197) – is in need of considerable renovation. We also have former First Northampton 66334 (MV02 VBZ) – a Wright Eclipse bodied Volvo B7TL. NTH has extensive archive materials which it is intended to conserve and ultimately make available to the public. Our remit is not limited to Northampton and extends to the whole of the county to include the United Counties Omnibus Company – historically the main operator to develop a network of bus services throughout Northamptonshire – and the many independent bus and coach operators who have been active throughout the shire. Several of our members own buses and coaches that have been part of the County scene. Our eventual aim is to create a...

Coronovirus Update September 2020

The Committee are keeping the situation under regular review and will naturally follow all Government advice as the situation progresses. The current position is that we have cancelled all events this year but we do hope to be able to carry out some trips later in the year. There may be restrictions on any trips we do operate to comply with safeguarding and it is possible that events may be cancelled at short notice. All decisions the Committee take about staging or participating in events, rallies and running days are made considering the best information available at the time. Many bus events throughout the Country have been cancelled or rescheduled so if you are planning on attending any please do check that they are going ahead before you travel. We have "pencilled in" events that may take place next year, just as a guide, please check the Events pages for more details - but bear in mind the list may change due...

Heritage Open Days – Saturday and Sunday 19th and 20th September 2020 – CANCELLED

We have been continuing to monitor the situation with Covid-19. The recent Government announcement that the next stage of easing of the lockdown had been postponed coupled with reports that increasingly suggest school re-opening may cause difficulties and, possibly. another national lockdown gave us cause for concern about the viability of our event. This concern was further increased by Northampton being designated as an ‘area of concern’ and Northampton Borough Council, who are our partners in promoting this event, issuing advice to avoid gatherings of more than 30 people, not to car share and to avoid public transport.Our plans had been to provide the maximum protection that we could to both volunteers and visitors. These precautions included limiting the number of passengers per bus, only loading immediately before departure with a loading and unloading procedure, passengers hand sanitising and wearing masks or face-coverings, cleaning of vehicles between trips and possibly taking contact telephone numbers for those travelling on each trip....

Heritage Open Day – Saturday and Sunday 19th and 20th September 2020

We continue to monitor the ongoing Covid-19 situation and particularly the recent localised restrictions that have been put in place in Northampton to forestall another lockdown. Our plans to hold the event continue to be formulated but obviously are under constant review. If you intend to participate during the event then please be aware that there will be restrictions in place. As is normal for the event, we will provide bus services to venues that are open to visitors. It is likely that many of the usual participating venues will be hosting virtual tours and as a consequence the need for buses may be reduced. To counter this, we plan to operate regular short tours in addition to the services. Travel on the buses will be entirely at the passengers’ own risk but we will be taking all reasonable precautions to minimise any danger. Buses will operate on reduced capacity to allow for social distancing. Intending passengers will be required to...
