West Monmouth Buses
by Michael Yelton & Chris Taylor

Small Local Authority owned bus operations, so small that the towns concerned did not even merit Borough status, but were classed as Urban District Councils, were to be found in a few areas of Britain, none more so than South Wales. The West Monmouthshire Omnibus Board was one of these rare organisations and as this latest book by Chris Taylor and Michael Yelton explains, was in fact unique.

The authors trace the establishment of the undertaking in 1926 right up to the Local Government re-organisation in 1974, when the features that made West Mon so unusual disappeared. Amongst enthusiasts another characteristics that made West Mon so interesting was the Bargoed Hill route, which required a succession of specially built buses to operate it over the years. All of this and much more is brought out in this latest fascinating volume in the Super Prestige Series.
