The chairman went for a short taster visit. The Yard is a real eye opener if you have not been before. (See attached) They cater for group visits of 15 or more. Visitors will be considered. (they have previously had visits from other ProBus clubs) A guided tour would be up to 90 minutes. The charge per head would be approx £6 for a guided tour which would include all the various machines working.
The Underfall Yard - Bristol http://www.underfallyard.co.uk/visit/groups-and-private-hire/
Parking at the yard is in short supply. Therefore travel to the yard would initially be to meet at Clarence House first, then go by car to Long Ashton Park and Ride then by a short bus ride (bus passes at the ready). Our visit is timed for 11.30 After the visit we could (if individual members wish) then combine it with a meal at The Cottage Inn which is right next door. https://whatpub.com/pubs/AVN/106/cottage-inn-bristol
Would members please let the Chairman know if they are interested so that arrangements can be made. Posted 9 Jan 2020
