As part of Heritage Open Day in September we visited the Nottingham Heritage Vehicles Charity in Hucknall. I try to visit somewhere new each Open Day and as I’d never heard of this place until I’d spotted it on the website I thought it was worth taking a chance on. The NHVC’s aim is to preserve and restore local transport and as such they had different buses on display during our visit.
I can’t claim to be much of a bus enthusiast but the volunteers were clearly knowledgeable and keen to show off their base. The NHV was established in 1999 and are now based in the former Trent Motor Traction bus depot, a rather run down building which they’re hoping to improve.
It was interesting to see some of the old buses that I could remember travelling on when I was younger and these earlier ones that my dad could remember.
