Grenville Motors' Friday Only (Redruth Market Day) services to Troon and Nine Maidens/Hangman's Hill operated from a rather obscure terminus under the railway viaduct opposite the Bullers' Arms public house. 952SAF was a Bedford SB5 with Harrington C41F bodywork which was new to Grenville in May 1963. It carried the first Crusader Mk 3 body and had been exhibited in the Demonstration Park at the 1962 Motor Show.
On withdrawal it was bought (still in excellent condition) by an enthusiast who sold it on for preservation. Unfortunately the purchaser wasn't true to his word and within days it went for scrap. No examples of this mark of bodywork are known to survive.
The Bullers' Arms (behind the photographer) was a large pub occupying the triangular junction of Falmouth Road and Trewirgie Road. Although no longer a pub, the building (now called Buller House) survives as Cut & Dried Unisex Hairdressers! Remarkably, Star Shoe Repairs survives to this day although no buses now terminate outside.
