Ken Bruce's Classic Bus

Haddenham is well used to film crews and all manner of 'dodgy goings on at the vicarage' when our village turns temporarily into Midsomer Oaks and Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby appears, sniffing around for clues.

But we're slightly less familiar with the sight of a wonderful old red bus, when it turns up posing for photographs at Church End.

Even more intriguing when one of the drivers and co-owners turns out to be none other than BBC Radio 2 presenter, Ken Bruce!

From pop master to Routemaster, eh Ken?

Ken co-owns a large number of single and double-decker buses from yesteryear, along with his BBC colleague and friend, Steve Madden, who lives here in Haddenham.

There was definitely a glint in Ken's eye, matching that from the top of his famous polished pate.

Any more hairs, please? .... ding, ding!
