March 2011: Arriva terminates service 16

From Monday 28th March, Arriva will no longer operate service 16 between Coalville, Ibstock, Measham and Ashby. This limits the connections available from Newton Burgoland and Snarestone, and means there will no longer be any service to Swepstone Main Street or Heather. Timetable changes have also been made to the Ashby - Measham - Swadlincote - Burton service.

The Buses section of the site has been updated with the new details. The previous bus information has been archived here.

August 2010: The bus is back!

Service 7 between Nuneaton and Ashby will start to run through Newton Burgoland and Swepstone from Tuesday 31st August 2010.
