Blessed are the Cheesemakers! Former Alexander P169, WG2373, is a 1934 Leyland Lion LT5B with a 1947 Burlingham B35F body. It is seen running for Cumbria Classic Coaches on a local Yorkshire Dales tourist service to the Wensleydale Creamery, Hawes.
This factory closed in 1992 but, thanks to a management buy-out and the publicity created by the Wallace & Gromit films, real Wensleydale cheese was soon back in production, and this much-valued source of employment and tourism is now busier than ever.
