TV viewers with longish memories may remember the BBC4 TV programme which followed this bus as it chuntered gently through the glorious countryside of Swaledale, Wensleydale, Widdale and Chapel-le-Dale, picking up walkers and farmers as it went.
It's back! The bus, that is (not the programme, though you can watch a lovely clip of it here). As the prosaically named 831, it leaves Richmond at 10:30, heading by way of Muker and the Buttertubs Pass to Hawes. Here, sadly, you now have to change to the 832 if you want to continue to Ribblehead, Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale. After a two hour stopover in that pleasant town, you can use the return buses to get back to Richmond by 18:00.
The bad news: the buses only run on Sundays and Bank Holidays. The good news: tickets cost a maximum of just £2 for each leg of the route. Although it's a popular route, and can fill up fast, if you're boarding in Richmond you stand a better chance of getting a seat than if you board further up-dale.
The full timetables for the 831 and 832 are on our Buses page. Parp, parp!
