Out & about in Dereham - buses on diversion

We spent a couple of hours in Dereham with David Bell this afternoon where roadworks currently taking place at the Market Place mean that some buses are on diversion.

Services affected are those which usually depart from the currently closed (until 31st March) bus stop outside Barclay's Bank, most routes that normally stop there are using an alternative stop in nearby Cowper Road instead, with the exception of First's X1 towards Lowestoft which is using the stop on the opposite side of the Market Place which is unaffected by the works.

Below are a small selection of photographs taken this afternoon...
