About Nick Blurton

A retired HR professional with an extensive background in the Bus & Coach Industry. After starting my career with Rolls-Royce, I spent most of my working life working on the Quarrying and Building Products industry. Throughout my career I have worked on a part-time basis as a coach driver and upon retirement took it up more or less full time.

My interest in buses and coaches goes back to my childhood and I now have an extensive collection of slides and photos which I use to illustrate my talks. The talks can either be around an historical theme, for example, the development of the original Routemaster in London, or about my experiences as a coach driver on UK and Continental tours and express work and competing in the UK Coach Driver of The Year competition when working for one of the County's leading coach operators.
