Stagecoach East 15953 (YN14 OXD) in Kentford - 3 Oct 2022 (P1130602)

Monday 3 October 2022 (1122) – Stagecoach East 15953 (YN14 OXD) seen rolling through Kentford when working the 1105 service 11 from Bury St. Edmunds to Newmarket and Cambridge.

It is an Alexander Dennis N230UD bodied Scania N230UD that was new in April 2014 and wears Stagecoach Gold livery with branding for the Cambridge-Haverhill service 13.

Kentford has two hostelries, one at each end of the village, both of which have been used as timetable points on services 11 and X11. However, ‘The Kentford’ is still referred to by its old historical name of The Cock Inn. The other pub is The Bell Inn which, because of it standing on the boundary with the neighbouring village of Kennett, has a formal address of the latter!

During mid-September 2022 Stagecoach East announced its intention to withdraw quite a number of bus services which it said were no longer commercially sustainable. Their services 11/X11 ceased after operation on Saturday 29 October 2022 along with the Cambridge-Newmarket-Ely service 12. Replacement services were introduced by Stephensons of Essex from Monday 31 October 2022.
