Samuel Ledgard 50 years on : 15 October

Samuel Ledgard’s blue and light grey buses were once a familiar sight in Otley as they plied the routes from Leeds to Otley and Ilkley amongst others and on 15th October, to mark the 50th anniversary of their last departure from 10am to 4pm there will be free vintage bus rides departing on a regular timetable on local routes. There will also be a display of vintage buses in the Cattle Market Street in the town during the day which will conclude with a social gathering at the Rose & Crown  pub in Bondgate where all are welcome to join members, enthusiasts and former employees of the company
