Re: Re Buses

One day when I was about 16 I was walking round Church Green towards South Street with a mate (could have Been Dave Pamment but I'm not sure). The buses going out of Keighley along South Street would often slow down and stop opposite the end of Church Green. Was there a zebra crossing further up the road? That day a bus did just that and there was a young woman wearing a kilt type skirt leaning against the rail on the platform. She decided to leg off the bus. Somehow her skirt must have become entangled on the rail. As she legged off the skirt didn't, and the bus then took off. She ran off up the road, obviously trying to catch up with the bus at the next stop, covered in confusion ............. and not a lot else. Moral - don't leg off a bus, you can do more that fall over.

Re: Re Buses

Yes Shaun, I have a feeling there was a zebra crossing next to a pub at the bottom of Goulbourne Street?
