Just round the back were a couple of cars, in the sort of state whereby you would think those two are never going to run again, A Citroen DS, and an NSU RO 80.
PS the location Knighton Radnorshire
Chalybeate springhttps://www.visitmidwales.co.uk/Llandri ... ature=1019
There are a number of mineral springs in the park, including saline, sulphur, magnesia, lithia, radium and chalybeate, the last being the only one that is still available to drink from a marble drinking fountain.
The springs were known in Roman times when the area was known as Balnea Siluria (baths of the Silures). There are a number of Roman practice camps in the fields to the south of the park, and a Roman Road runs through the park on SW, NE direction; there is also a Roman well beneath the paved area in front of the Spa Buildings.
The Knighton bus was tracked down and was as you say, but just slipped into 1960 at first registration.
This is what it might have looked like with it's full clothes on..
The location is Knighton in Wales, which fits, and according to comments at the time was to be restored to a non-passenger carrying purpose. Identified as 800 HYD formerly owned by Bryant and Clarke of Williton which I presume is Somerset.

Yes I never quite managed to get my Scottish Rail Rover Holiday 1965 ish slides out of storage into the projector and photographing the screen for the observation car pics up to Oban. If the edit button remains alive for a little while I may edit them in later, so as not to spoil the perfection of "clean County Days in the sun" when the archaeologists in a few centuries time dig up our posts. Bet those Romans at Vindolanda wouldn't have thought their scribblings on tablets of their trivialities would be so treasured in 2022.
