Wellglade Group Photo Index

Wellglade came about with the privatisation of the National Bus Company. Trent was sold to their Management in the 1986. In 1989 they purchased Barton Buses, a large independent who operated since 1908. Next to be purchased was the company of Gilbert Kinch who operated in the town of Loughborough, these days the company runs it as Kinch Bus. Wellglade introduced the Notts & Derby name to operate contracted services around the area, usually using cast offs from it's own fleet and also secondhand vehicles from companies like Lothian Buses. Wellglade expanded to the North in 2010 with the purchase of TM Travel of Halfway who operated a number of contracts around North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. In 2012 TrentBarton took over the services of Felix Bus Services who had previously operated the Black Cat & Ilkeston Flyer jointly with TrentBarton. Also in 2012 TrentBarton formed a 50/50 partnership with Centrebus to form High Peak Buses based from Buxton depot. The operation looks to be managed by Centrebus with most vehicles painted in the blue, orange and white livery or Centrebus with only some vehicles in dedicated livery for routes like Skyline and Transpeak.
