The Society was formed in 1996 to save two 1928 former Aldershot and District Dennis E buses from a field at Four Marks, Hampshire. Since then the society has grown, it has become a limited company and a charity and more buses have been rescued. The fleet now comprises nine vehicles dating from the 1920s to the 1960s when public transport was in its heyday.

The Dennis E type vehicles form the backbone of the fleet but all require major restoration work to get them back onto the road.

A Dennis Lancet bus BOT 303 has been acquired but again this requires major bodywork repairs to get the bus back to as-new condition. The newest vehicles owned are a trio of Dennis Loline III's. The first to return to the road is 488 KOT, which attended the Mid-Hants rally in July 2001 .

The next vehicle to be restored will be the Dennis Loline with rare Alexander bodywork. This project will include a complete rewiring, the construction of a new staircase and major bodywork repairs. This work is carried out by a small band of volunteers, but we urgently need more support, both to help finance the restorations and to carry out the practical side of the restoration work.
