Rothwell Motor Services

Dee Lane, Holt 


The fleet history ascertained suggests that this business was started in around 1925 with a Ford Model T.  Ironically this vehicle DD2728 was purchased from Crosville.  They had acquired it themselves second hand from G Hooker in Cirencester in 1924 but they only kept it for a short period before selling to James.

It is known that Rothwell Motor Service ran a route from Wrexham to Holt and Broxton.

James sold his business to Crosville in January 1934 and 5 buses were transferred.


The table below gives a list of all recorded vehicles known to have been with this operator.  I am indebted to David Donati for his dedicated work in compiling this data and enabling me to present it.

In the right hand column - where available - there is a link to a photograph of the vehicle.  The photo will open in a new window.  Links in CAPITAL LETTERS suggest the vehicle is seen when with the operator.

Chassis and body numbers are to be found on the right hand side of the table below. You may need to scroll to see them.
