Barrow Transport Group

About Us


The Barrow Transport Group

The Barrow Transport Group was formed in 1995 by a small group of enthusiasts with the aim of preserving vehicles and artifacts and encouraging interest in the history of public service vehicles in South Cumbria and in Barrow Corporation Transport in particular


Down the shed

We have a core group of volunteers who regularly work on the maintainance  and restoration of our fleet of vehicles. We have regular working parties down 'the shed' which feature tea and cakes quite strongly. We have job to suit all abilaties and new volunteers are always welcome. Contact us for further details.


Days out with the Group

We are a 'social' group and have outings for members most weekends during the Spring and Summer to transport events up and down the country. We also like to help out other charitable and educational groups and have run the Park and Ride service for the local RNLI lifeboat Gala since the early 1990's.
