In 1967, the bustling North Yorkshire market town of Skipton was the setting for a surprisingly vibrant selection of bus types and liveries. Situated at the junction of the main A59 and A65 cross-country routes, the town could boast no fewer than four different bus companies operating from the town’s Waller Hill Bus Station. Three companies were based in the town and the other just four miles away at Gargrave.

Skipton 1967 with Pennine, Laycock, Ribble and West Yorkshire Buses was born out of a visit to Skipton by the author and his family on a Sunday in October 1967. One might expect Sunday to be a quiet day but on this Sunday a plethora of stage routes were running as well as a number of seasonal routes.

The book seeks to illustrate this complex picture and includes details of the operators, routes and of course the buses – all illustrated with captioned photographs from the author’s own collection and other enthusiast and society sources.

The photographs are presented in one or two-per page format. Approximately half are in colour and half in black & white. A table of timetabled stage routes from a Sunday in 1967 is also included. 48 pages.
