We now have two new bus routes serving Cropwell Bishop. The Yourbus 822 service no longer runs and has been replaced as follows:

The 833, operated by Vectare on contract to Nottinghamshire County Council, provides a good daytime link directly to Bingham via Cropwell Butler (14 minute journey time). It runs every hour from Church St with the first bus at 0744 and the last at 1644. Return from Bingham (Newgate Street) is at 38 minutes past the hour with the last bus at 1738. The return fare to Bingham is £4.40 for adults and £2.20 for children.

In the other direction the 833 travels eventually to Bingham through the Vale villages as the 822 used to do.

The 33 service, operated commercially by CT4N, provides a service through to Friar Lane every hour. During the daytime it loops around Hoe View Road (at 42 minutes past the hour), and Church St (at 47 minutes past the hour) before travelling to town via Cropwell Butler, Hollygate Estate, Cotgrave Ringleas and Daleside, Tollerton, Morrisons and West Bridgford. The return fare to town is £6 and the journey time is about 60 minutes.

At peak times the timetable changes and the route through Cropwell Bishop alters slightly as the bus travels to and from Langar, Granby and Sutton.

The existing 850/852 will continue to run and offers us a limited service to and from Radcliffe.

The new services should enable us to leave our cars at home more often. Please give them a try.

If you have any problems or concerns please report them to the Clerk, Janice Towndrow 0115 989 4656 or email
