Welcome to the Website
Crosville Enthusiasts' Club (1967).
As the name suggests the Club was founded in 1967 and caters for all those interested in the operations and vehicles of Crosville, a bus company formed in 1906 which grew to operate in North, Mid and parts of West Wales together with Cheshire, significant parts of Merseyside, South Lancashire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
In addition to celebrating this extremely interesting bus undertaking we also look at the current activities of the bus and coach operators in the former Crosville operating area.
Whilst a number of our members are based in the region served by Crosville the interest in the company and its history is shared by very many others and we have members from all over the United Kingdom.

In addition to belonging to a fellowship of enthusiasts who share an interest in Crosville members are also able to enjoy:-
Monthly Magazine - The Review
We produce and dispatch to members every month a 36–40 page magazine which covers service developments and fleet details of the bus firms operating in the former Crosville territory. In addition to the latest news reports there are articles written by members and others about their experiences and memories of Crosville and related subjects. Also included are the events of 25 years ago in 'Reviews Revisited' and the ability to keep track of the Crosville vehicles we remember with fondness. We aim to cater for the interests of those wishing to learn about and remember Crosville and also for those who wish to be kept updated of the latest developments within the former Crosville area. It also contains a good selection of topical and historical photographs.
The Club organises a number of tours each year using mainly preserved Crosville vehicles. We visit various parts of the former territory and often follow the old routes used by Crosville gaining valuable knowledge of the history of these services.
The Club Tours are for members and invited guests only but we occasionally open up the tours to members of allied clubs and our members are often invited on tours run by other clubs and organisations.
Most tours start and finish in Chester - the city where the former company had its head office.
