One of Hunter's immaculate all Leyland PD2s, 17, DJR681, about to to depart Northumberland Square for Seaton Deleval. The profile of the "Backworth Bus" standing behind the PD2 seems to have improved from a Bristol K5G to a Bristol FLF6B.
As a child I used to be fascinated by the blackened facade of the fire gutted, but strangely impressive looking Deleval Hall, near Seaton Deleval. However recently the National Trust have cosmetically restored the exterior and grounds, making it all the more impressive. Worth a visit if you are in the area, but you can no longer get there by PD2!
