You never, or rarely, see any Eavesway coaches around anymore, and once they were everywhere. The only coach company you frequently see around Wigan now is Grayways. Hursts went bust, I think?, and Walls's merged with Grayways.
My dad used to often recall going on holiday to Abergele in the 1950s (before cars being more affordable for the masses),'and went with Eavesways when they first started doing trips. One time they had to wait six hours for the coach to come and pick them up. No motorways back then. Imagine waiting 6 hours today, theyd be out of business in no time.
