Now in its 13th year, the Peak Park Preserved Bus Gathering is organised jointly by Transpire and the Chesterfield 123 Preservation Group and has become a popular annual event in the transport rally calendar. In 2018 it is being held on
Sunday 17th June 2018.
Located at the Peak Rail Rowsley South station (in between Bakewell and Matlock), the event normally attracts more than 50 vintage buses and coaches and a highlight of our event is the opportunity to travel on some of these vehicles and on the scenic heritage railway to Darley Dale and Matlock. Frequent free vintage bus services also operate to Matlock, Bakewell and to Chatsworth House, allowing less transport minded visitors to our event to also spend time at this magnificent stately home. In addition to the vintage bus services and the steam and diesel hauled train service operated by Peak Rail, there will also be a display of static vehicles and transport related sales stalls at Rowsley South.
