Sounds about right, as the owner passed away some months ago. They no longer operate any local bus services, other than schools.

the depots are 600 yards apart by road, but light years apart by standards, would assume Cedars place would be worth a bit as real estate into the bargain for those selling it... Hopefully some of the fleet is retained some unique vehicles included..

Glad it's gone into safe hand, as business was a little rocky the last few years...

Hi,
Would it be possible for somebody to send me a current fleetlist of Ceder Coaches & Herberts who are acquiring them! This will be most helpfull if somebody has this data to hand.
If anybody has this fleetlist, please sent to s.martin157@btinternet.com
Many thanks for your help
Best Wishes
Stuart Martin

Does anyone know when the Friday services 146 & 164 to Flitwick Tesco last ran?
