Glyn Williams Travel was established in 1974 in Crosskeys, Monmouthshire and grew steadily and in 2005 operated 20 different bus routes, both tendered and commercially. Initially second hand coaches were purchased, but in 1983 the first new coach was delivered, and interetsingly it was one of the few Ward Dalesman coaches built. The C-12.620 was fitted with a Plaxton C57F body arrived in August 1983.
Williams started to operate a local service between Blackwood and Newport in the mid-1980´s , and the coaching side of the business was reduced. A more detailed history is in preparation, and we have published these brief notes due to the annoucement by Stagecoach in South Wales of their "take-over" of the Glyn Williams business with immediate effect.
