Out & about in Northampton - part 2

David Bell recently visited Northampton, the town is fairly interesting from a bus enthusiasts point of view with a wide variety of vehicles run by several bus operators including the main operator Stagecoach and the increasingly down at heel Firstgroup operation as well as several independant operators including newcomer - Hertfordshire based Uno.

In this second part of this two part photo special we will take a look at a variety of buses operated in the town by Stagecoach, Uno, Meridian Bus and Z&S International, all photos kindly supplied by and © David Bell.
