New operator for the Backbower circular.
The bus leaving Hyde bus station last Thursday is a #342 on the Backbower circular. It is being operated by Stotts of Oldham after the previous operator Speedwells suddenly ceased trading the day before. On the left is the Astoria bingo hall which closed down in 2010. On the right is the Job Centre and in the background is the Bike-n-Hound public house.
The same bus on the #344 route (the Backbower circular in the opposite direction) can be seen on Hyde Daily Photo.
