Between 1982 and 2015, Showbus, Britain’s largest bus rally, was, with the exception of 2013, held at two sites. The first was the stately home of Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, but in 1993 the rally moved to IWM Duxford near Cambridge. Modern and preserved buses and many others appeared over the years, with some of those new in 1982 being in the ranks of the preserved movement by 2015. Many one-offs appeared, with operators showcasing their latest vehicles.

Back in 1982 the scene was very different with most service buses in public ownership and Leyland the major bus builder; by 2015 most were in private hands and the Leyland name is now history.

All images are in colour and offer a wonderfully nostalgic look at one of the highlights of the UK’s transport calendar.
