Some local bus nostalgia is helping make a bus stop more vibrant in south Devon, reports Nick Larkin

A once plain bus shelter on Kingsbridge Quay in Kingsbridge, Devon, has been transformed with vinyls depicting the bus station’s history. The new vinyls have been installed on the shelter showing the development of the Quay site and the different buses serving the South Hams area since the early 1900s. Created by The Thames Valley & Great Western Omnibus Trust (TVAGWOT) using material from its archives, the display gives waiting passengers an insight to the changes in land use, buildings, fashions and vehicles over the decades. The constant feature is of course the bus services, serving the needs of communities across the area.
