Following on from last week's Tuesday Time Tunnel looking at defunct operator D-Way Travel, for this week's post I bring you another Norfolk operator who can no longer be found operating PCVs.

Bure Valley Coaches had an operating centre at The Olde Coach House on Parish Road in Stratton Strawless, registered by Richard Woodcock from his home address in nearby Buxton. The registered operating centre is now the same site which Eastons Holidays inhabits with their fleet of coaches.

A 1999 PSV Circle fleet lists shows Bure Valley Coaches as operating a fleet of nine vehicles; consisting of one VanHool Alizee bodied Volvo B10M, one very rare Jonckheere Jubilee bodied Leyland Tiger, two Plaxton Paramount bodied Bedford YMT and three Duple bodied Bedford YMTs, a Duple bodied Leyland Tiger, Plaxton Paramount bodied Volvo B10M and a Jonckheere Deauville bodied Scania K112CRB.

By the time of the closure, the operator had a vehicle allowance of three vehicles.
