We are pleased to announce that the timetable for this year’s Imberbus service on Saturday 20th August has now been confirmed and can be downloaded by clicking here to visit the 2016 page on our website. The arrangements are similar to last year, including:
- Departures at least every 30 minutes from Warminster Station to Imber from 9.45am onwards;
- Buses serving Tilshead, Chitterne, West Lavington, Market Lavington, New Zealand Farm Camp and Brazen Bottom every hour;
- Up to 16 old and new Routemasters in use.
As usual, all buses will connect at our interchange point at Gore Cross so that passengers can easily travel to/from all points on our network. To enable you to do this in an affordable way, we will be offering an all day ticket at a cost of £10 per adult, with up to 3 children being allowed to accompany each adult for the bargain fare of just £1 each. However, ordinary bus fares will also be available and so if you just wish to travel from Warminster to visit the 16th century St Giles’ Church at Imber (which will be open specially on this date), you can purchase an ordinary single ticket for just £2 each way.
As in previous years, Imberbus will operate as an ordinary local bus service, so there is no need to pre-book or pay in advance – just turn up and pay the conductor on the bus in cash !
Advice on travelling to Warminster can be found on the “How to get to Warminster” page on our website. Remember that trains run approximately every hour to Warminster from Cardiff, Newport, Bristol, Bath, Trowbridge, Westbury, Salisbury, Southampton and Portsmouth, with connections available from London and the West Country at Westbury and Salisbury – please see the First Great Western website for timetables and further details.
Ordinary bus services also run to Warminster on Saturdays from Bath, Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge, Westbury, Salisbury and Frome and further details of these can be found on the Traveline website. If you are intending to stay overnight in the area, you may wish to visit the Warminster Information Centre website to find suitable accommodation.
We hope that you will be able to join us on 20th August and if you would like further information about our event, please check out the other pages on our website – www.imberbus.wordpress.com, including the Frequently Asked Questions page which explains what you can and cannot do when you get to Imber.
