The Eastern Counties Bus Preservation Group
(Registered Charity No. 1188658)

We are based near Thetford Forest in Suffolk.

Our aim is to 'Preserve our History' for future generations to come! 

We always welcome members who would like to volunteer & help us on our restoration projects, no experience necessary. But if you have mechanical, fabrication or bodywork skills that’s a bonus too!
