The number X43 bus



A bus ride of city, motorway and hills.

This route is known as the Witch Way because the busses run into the district of Pendle in Lancashire. Pendle hill is historically linked to Witches. We are only traveling as far as Burnley but most of the X43's that we are using carry on a little bit further to Nelson.
