Have your say

take a trip down memory lane and arrive in vintage style to a Leeds museum this summer.

Restored Leeds City Transport buses from the 1950s and 1960s are set to motor between Leeds Industrial Museum and Thwaite Mills Watermill.

And visitors to the sites can gain free entry to one of the museums if they keep their admission tickets safe.

The vintage buses will be in operation on Sunday, August 23, between 10.30am and 5pm.

Thwaite Mills Watermill, which is nestled in Stourton, is one of the last remaining examples in Britain of a water-powered mil.

The working riverside museum is now run by Leeds City Council in partnership with Yorkshire Water.
