1. B3455
Haslingden was an early municipal bus operator, running a bus service to Helmshore from 1907 to 1908 with a Leyland X. The town was served by the steam trams of the Accrington Steam Tramways Company which were taken over by Accrington and Haslingden. The latter didn't want to operate trams but did end up building a garage which housed their bus fleet in addition to some Accrington trams. The Helmshore service started again in 1919, this time with this BSA 14-18hp Light Van shown here, which had a twelve seat body by Heap, a local wheelwright and as can be read in the front window was one-man operated. It was replaced the following year by an Austin which in turn was replaced by a Guy B in 1924.
