Friends of King Alfred Buses


Our main vintage bus Running Day next year will be on Sunday 3rd May 2020, with all the usual features such as visiting vehicles and the Transport Bazaar.

It would have been on Bank Holiday Monday 4th May 2020, but as Government recently changed the Bank Holiday date in early May the event has had to be moved 24 hours earlier!

Founded in 1985, we are a Winchester based transport heritage charity whose volunteers aim to preserve the memory of R Chisnell & Sons, trading as King Alfred Motor Services.


We meet regularly to celebrate our work and to enjoy the vehicles we preserve. Our friendly group is always welcoming of new members and are always keen to share!

We preserve all known remaining vehicles which worked for King Alfred - some 14 to be precise! We show our vehicles and often give free rides at events across the South.
