Looks suspiciously like an ex-London DMS. There's not many of those around nowadays, so it shouldn't be hard to find it.

Ian's Bus Stop confirms this

DMS 326 JGF 326K   2/72    new to Aldenham: 2/1DM1/2: PRV/Gardner, red, wh.band
                           3/86    bought by Pleasurewood Hills Theme park, Suffolk: courtesy bus
                           c94-5    engine failure
                            3/95    sold to Wigley, (Carlton) for scrap

As a contrast, here is a picture of DMS326 whilst in London service
