The year 2021 is a very special one for us, it is the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the West Riding Wulfrunian Preservation Society (WRWPS) which was later to become the West Riding Omnibus Preservation Society (WROPS). Some years later, WROPS formed the West Riding Omnibus Museum Trust to own and operate the premises at Ravensthorpe which became the Dewsbury Bus Museum. The rest, as they say, is history......
Help us to make 2021 a year to remember!
