Welcome to the Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust


Welcome to the RVPT website. To get the best out of the site take a look at each of the drop down tabs from the headings at the top of the home page. On the Home Page you will find the blog which gives frequent updates on our activities. If you are new to the site you can click on the Blog tab and see all the blogs in date order. These will give you a feel for what we’ve been doing. About Us gives a brief history of the Trust and there are profiles of most of the buses in our collection.

The Events tab provides information on events we are organising and some of those we plan to attend as guests. Our Links page takes you to some of our friends and you can learn more about how to support us by looking at the Membership tab.

We hope you enjoy the site and there’s a facility to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
