Bus

Our Branch area is served by 6 bus companies:

Aintree = Aintree Coachline
Arriva = Arriva Midlands
Celtic = Celtic Travel
Lakeside = Lakeside Coaches
MM = Minsterley Motors
Tanat = Tanat Valley

Note: most towns/villages only have a day-time service (and not at all on Sundays), and times may differ for some routes on Saturdays. Use these times as a rough guide only, please check the relevant bus timetable before a trip, and remember that some pubs only open in the evening/weekends – refer to WhatPub.com for information on pub opening hours. Sadly not all local villages with pubs are on this list, to visit places such as Clun and Wentnor requires a fair walk to the nearest bus stop or town, or even a short taxi ride in some cases.

Some of the towns/villages reachable are:
