    Do you know anything of a Reverand John Judge of Leighton in the later 1880’s please?
    Was he in charge of a Methodist Church ?
    What is known of his family?
    Am researching a Miss. Frances Eleanor Judge.
    Hoping there is a local historian who can help with my query.
    Many thanks. A.P.Devon UK

    I am currently writing a book on the subject of “Independent Buses in North Wales” and wonder if anybody can provide me with information about William Davies of Leighton (the local bus operator until February 1950) or David C Lloyd of Hope (who ran the route from July 1952 until 1964). Photographs of vehicles operating the route would also be very welcome. Help!

    My wife’s family around Guilsfield in the 1930’s & 40’s travelled locally on what was affectionately called John the bus’ bus. We have a photo of the bus when it was at the Guilsfield Show a year or two ago. How does one convey this to Neville Mercer?
