The Friends of King Alfred Buses are famed for their excellent running days in Winchester.

They run two events every year: the main event – on the May bank holiday weekend with their entire fleet & visitors from far afield running an expansive network of routes radiating from Winchester – and a smaller New Years Day running day.

Last year’s running day was brilliant – with lush clear blue skies making for excellent photographs.

In this picture:

Here is FoKAB’s 708, the recently refurbished Olympic, sat in the village of Crawley with the vibrant green bus reflecting on the surface of the village pond.

Interestingly, Crawley receives a better level of service during FoKAB running days than it would normally! Stagecoach’s route 16 only serves the village twice a day each way en route to Stockbridge, Houghton & Broughton from Winchester.
