If you have ever wanted to visit Bury Market/Art gallery you can use this bus. It goes over the moor via Bacup, Ramsbottom and Bury. Unfortunately due to the cuts in subsidy and low usage this service is ending on 27.1.17 so you will need to be quick.

It is also a shame that isolated communities such as Clough Foot and Sharneyford will no longer have a bus service. We know that this affects the younger and the older sections of the community most as well as commuters.

If you have time then why not give this bus journey a go before it ends.

Polly Guest, Ididn't know about a bus to Bury. Where does it set off from as I have never noticed this bus before. Would be interested in going there. Thanks.

I think Polly is referring to the Rossendale Transport 482 bus route, which runs from Todmorden to Bury via Bacup and Rawtenstall. After next weekend, due to funding cutbacks from Lancashire County Council - caused in turn by funding cutbacks from central government - the Todmorden to Bacup section of this route will be discontinued.
