Silver Service bus

Could you please put the enclosed photo into the magazine. I do not know who they are but I do know of the Silver Service buses running from Crich.

Mrs J Seal


Living at Darley Dale as a mere youngster between the 1940s and 1960s I remember the Silver Service bus service very well (we used to call it “Woolliscrofts” after its founder). It worked the Darley Dale area to Matlock service alongside the North Western buses. I did not know that it operated out of Crich. The only Crich to Matlock service I knew in the 1960s was the Midland General E2 route. Dennis Hooton and I were its frequent passengers in that period. Fond memories. Ed.
