Sunday bus service to Avebury cut

I've just been notified that the 49 bus has been included in funding cuts made by Swindon Borough Council to Sunday services.

It will no longer be possible for anyone to travel to Avebury WHS by public transport on Sundays as from June 5th 2011.

Statement made on service web-site:

"We regret that as a result of the total withdrawal of Swindon Borough Council funding for evening and Sunday bus services in Swindon that further changes will have to be introduced from Sunday 5 June 2011". (

That's terrible news. So much for trying to encourage visitors to the WHS to leave their cars at home.

Oh well, at least NT may be able to get a bit more revenue from parking fees.

I hate this government and everything it stands for. "We're all in it together". Bastards.
