Welcome to the Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust


Welcome to the new RVPT website. We will be updating this site regularly to keep you up to date with our events, restoration activity and much more. We have an active restoration programme as well as attending many events during the course of the year with our restored buses and coaches. On this new site you will find details of many of our vehicles as well as details of recent and planned events. For those who are not familiar with our history there is a short summary of our 40 plus years as well as a brief description of who we are and what we do.

We’ve launched this new site with basic material in place but we will continue to add new material and upgrade the content so do come back regularly to see what we’re doing. Your comments and questions are welcomed and there is a facility to email us with your points.

Ray Bignell, Chairman RVPT
