[quote="jim"]I recall some of Ledgard's bus services using King Street just above the Metropole Hotel in front of some long wooden huts as their terminus.
Yes jim the parking area for these coaches was Wellington St. and as it was opposite King St i assume it was used for the overspill but these Coaches were Luxury vehicles in their day and i could never imagine them being used for anything less than being hired for Special / Social occasions .

Just to clarify , as jim rightly supposed, I was referring to the Leeds terminus for the bus services rather than the coach trips.
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!
