Almost a century old, 32-seat Ashton Corporation 8 has been restored to imaculate condition after decades abandoned in a North Wales field. Built in 1928, the bus was used as a caravan for nearly half a century before being restored. It is now in the care of the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester. See this week’s Industry Heritage pages for more on the unique vehicle.
