  This particular bus entered service in 1965 and worked the Leigh area until 1978, and was one of the last AEC examples in use in the Greater Manchester fleet. The Leigh livery carried the attractive colours of light blue with cream relief. The bus is owned by GMT.

Alex,the bus station was on Holden Road.it was nice when towns had their own buses,single deckers were quite rare then,and the double deckers were usually full.

Garry,the bus depot in Atherton was for the LUT buses.

Leigh buses were blue and cream, Leigh bus DEPOT was in Holden Road, Leigh bus STATION was in King Street (where it is now) and LUT's head office was on Leigh Road in Howe Bridge and had nothing to do with Leigh Corporation.

Comments by Garry, 3rd March 2017  
Oh..thanks Maurice it was LUT.

All the Leigh double deckers had a notice in the drivers cab."Beware of Chat Moss bridge",the bridge was quite low.

Comments by Raymond, 3rd March 2017  
I remember Chat Moss bridge, went under it many times on my way to Risley, a later bridge.
