552 reprieved

David Peters (Chair of the Parish Council) has just heard the latest news from the County Council about our bus service. It will be down to three weekdays, and the earlier (1245) return time will suit more people than the present later time.

The service will now be run by Kirkby Lonsdale Coaches rather than Travellers Choice. There are links between the ownership of the two companies.

Also instead of running between Levens and Kendal via the A591 and Milnthorpe Road, the service will now run via Sedgwick and Natland.


Click here for the new timetable.


Whilst the timetable says 18th November, I still have no details of an approved start date, and publicity will not be released until this is agreed.


As soon as I know more I will contact you again.
