Maidstone & District bus no. 5896 (Leyland Olympian) in London Road
The predominently green buses of the Maidstone & District company were a familiar part of the townscape of Tunbridge Wells and surrounding towns for decades. The company was long ago absorbed by the Arriva group, and the livery and name are no longer used. Back in 1988, when this photograph was taken, the company had turned to the Leyland Olympian for its double decker bus requirements, although there were still a lot of Bristol VRT's in its fleet. This Leyland, with body by Northern Counties, and registration number F896DKK, was on route 215 to Tonbridge.
