Nottingham Heritage Vehicles is an East Midland based charity whose aim is to preserve and restore local transport heritage for future generations. Located in the former Trent Motor Traction bus depot in Hucknall, a 1936 art deco style building, NHVC is a registered educational transport charity with a unique collection of vehicles from Nottingham and the surrounding areas. Their collection comprises vehicles representative of the early 1900s, from half cab rear platform vehicles to the first of Trent Buses low floor minibus, to the only surviving Nottingham Bendybus of 2002. In the depot they have examples of vehicles depicting generations of travel and social economic history of our local area so why not pop along to one of their open days.
On the 17 June, the charity will have a double decker bus stationed on the Square where visitors will be able to rest up, hear about our transport heritage and even sit in the driver's cab to get the full ‘On the Buses’ experience! In addition, the charity will be running one of their heritage buses to and from the Old Market Square and the Masonic Hall on Goldsmith Street. The bus service will pick up from the bottom of King Street (by Brian Clough’s statue) and drop off at the entrance of the hall so there will be no need to climb the hill. Why not take advantage of the free ride, let the bus take the strain, enjoy the experience of bygone days and take in the masonic temple tour and fascinating exhibition of masonic antiquaries.
