Welcome to the
Peak Park Preserved Bus Gathering
Now in its 15th 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. This year it was held on
Sunday 22nd August 2021
but we hope to hold it again at an earlier date during 2022.
Located at the Peak Rail Rowsley South station (in between Bakewell and Matlock), our event normally attracts more than 50 vintage buses and coaches and a highlight is the opportunity to travel on some of these vehicles and on the scenic heritage railway to Darley Dale and Matlock. We also operate frequent free vintage bus services to Matlock, Darley Dale and Bakewell and there is also be a display of static vehicles and transport related sales stalls at Rowsley South.
Of added interest at Rowsley is the Ashover Light Railway Society, who have recently made Rowsley South Station their base with the aim of recreating there, the Ashover Butts terminus of this former narrow gauge line that closed in 1950. The Society has already erected a depot and a length of track at Rowsley and their members are only too happy to demonstrate their progress to visitors.
This website will be updated during the spring with further information including how to enter a vehicle. However if you need to contact us before then, please feel free to email us.
