Return to the Market Square 2021 – 100 Years of United Counties – 19th September 2021.
We run our own event every year when possible with visiting classic buses and our own buses on display on the Market Square Northampton with free bus rides on some of them from The Drapery. This year it coincides with the 100th Year since United Counties was formed, so as well as our normal collection we hope to have a big selection of United Counties buses through the years. The event starts at 10am on the Sunday and for you enthusiasts we have a provisional list of vehicles. This may of course be subject to change. We hope to run the buses in bold on the routes listed. First bus leaves Bay 17 at 9.55 to Milton Malsor, Last bus at 15.40 to Parklands. Each return trip is between 25-45 minutes depending on the route.
