    Arrow NorthWest Vehicle Restoration Trust HQ - Liverpool - May 2012 -

    2 years ago a good friend of mine who is involved in the restoration of buses kindly gave me and kevsy21 a tour of there premises that they shared with other restoration teams at burscough airfield.

    http://www.urbexforums.co.uk/showthr...september-2010

    2 years on and there still going strong but have moved into new premises and set there own base up (NorthWest Vehicle Restoration Trust) ,leaving the airfield behind they now have a much bigger space to work with including pits which was something burscough never had.

    hats off to this team for investing there own money and time into this project restoring buses for use in various running days for the public throughout the year.

    Most of the vehicles id seen previously at burscough but there was also a lot of new additions to the fleet ,which was nice to see.


    thanks again chaps for allowing me down and being so hospitable.

    visited solo

    it was good to see the ford prefect again ,the last time i seen this it was covered in bird crap.

    Super stuff there!
    The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.
