The United Counties Story

by Robert Cook, Andrew Cook

The United Counties Story Synopsis

This is the story of the United Counties Omnibus Company, once one of Britain's largest and most influential bus companies. From its headquarters in Northampton, its sphere of influence covered most of the south-east Midlands, extending from Stamford and Market Harborough in the north, down to Oxford, Aylesbury and Luton in the south, from Daventry in the west to Bedford and Biggleswade in the east. Now part of Stagecoach East, the United Counties was the amalgamation of many small bus operators in the counties as they combined to serve an ever-increasing area. Robert Cook and Andrew Shouler combine social and transport history as they narrate the memories of people who worked in the local bus industry and detail the vehicles employed by the bus operators of this once great national bus company.
