Brightling buses – less rare than unicorns, but only just

WealdLinkBus2Delving through “East Sussex in Figures”, one learns that at the time of the 2011 census, there were 154 households in Brightling, 8 of which had no access to a car (5.2%).

The good news, for these households and others, is that Brightling’s bus service has survived the latest round of cuts in April/May 2015 (a cynic would say that it would have been hard to reduce the service without eliminating it altogether).  There is a service on Tuesdays and Thursdays providing access to Battle.  It is now operated by North Wealden Community Transport Partnership (with funding from East Sussex County Council) and the timetable is here.
