We are pleased to announce that this year we are aiming to operate the Imberbus service on
Saturday 26th August 2017
when once again, several former London Transport Routemaster buses (plus a few new ones) will provide a bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain between 10am and 5pm.
However, as the primary purpose of the Imber Ranges is military training, it is still possible that this date may have to change, but if it does we will let you know as quickly as possible. We will also contact you during the summer when the final arrangements have been confirmed, but at the moment we are expecting them to be broadly similar to last year, details of which can be found HERE.
Last year’s Imberbus event was by far the most successful yet, with good weather for most of the day and a record number of passengers, enabling us to donate more than £9,000 to the Imber Church fund and the Royal British Legion.
If you travelled on the Imberbus service last year, you may not have been aware that overhead, a drone was filming Imber from the air and inevitably a few of the Imberbuses found their way into the footage – click HERE – to see some of what they captured.
If you have not travelled on the Imberbus service before and would like to know more about it, please visit our website at www.imberbus.wordpress.com which contains details about the history of Imber and the background to the service. We have also retained on there, details of the arrangements that applied for Imberbus 2016 to give you an idea of what to expect, but we will reword this as soon as the final arrangements have been confirmed during the Summer.
We therefore hope that you will be able to join us in August and look forward to seeing you then.
