Nottingham history walks to nowhere by bus

A busy 35 in Bilborough

For a good few years now I have been posting occasional walks to my parkviews blog. They are almost exclusively walks in and around Nottingham. Here are links to my two most recent walks, one with TravelRight around Aspley and Cinderhill on Saturday 12 April and my Good friday walk along an abandoned section of the Nottingham Canal.

Nottingham City Transport’s 35 bus is going double-deck again sometime this year. This photograph I took on Easter Saturday at the Brindley Road stop on Birchover Road in Bilborough demonstrates why. The occasional double-decker does already operate on the 35, but on 24 May 2014 there will be at least one double-deck 35 — the TravelRight 35 ‘History Bus Special’, leaving Bulwell Bus Station at 11.27am. To catch it you will need to pre-book with TravelRight to get your free ticket.

I am going to do my best to make it a memorable journey for all concerned, with some very special surprises. I have long argued that the 35 is Nottingham’s ‘Heritage Bus Route’ and Saturday 24 May is my chance, thanks to TravelRight, to prove my claim. Please come along if you can, but book soon. The last I heard, the tickets were going fast!

Over the next couple of days I will be posting the Easter Saturday walk around Bilborough and Strelley with TravelRight and their History Walks Leader, Chris Matthews, so please come back in a few days.

Thanks for visiting
