A 1930s bus timetable

At Market Lavington Museum, we have a book all about Lavington and Devizes Motor Services, which was owned by Mr Fred Sayer until 1934. You are most welcome to look at it, and many other local books, in our upstairs study room. For a shorter read about bus services in and around Market Lavington, see The bus company in Market Lavington.

Here is Fred Sayer, proprietor at the time of our timetable booklet, dating from the early 1930s.

Fred Sayer had a large fleet of buses and charabancs, based in the Market Place, used for regular services and outings.

This little booklet contains timetables for some of the many routes in the local area.

Routes 13 – 24 were run by our local firm.

Service 13 would have been a much used bus locally as it linked Market Lavington to the market town of Devizes, about six miles away.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
