Talk on Hovingham Villa by Professor Dominic Powlesland 16 April

Tuesday 16 April 7.30pm, Slingsby Methodist Chapel

Professor Dominic Powlesland will give a lecture sharing details of last year’s discoveries during excavations of Hovingham’s Roman villa. Come along to hear this highly-entertaining speaker. The lecture will be in the Methodist Chapel itself (rather than the chapel schoolroom) as we expect this to be a popular session.

Members £2; Guests £3.

All change for the 194 bus service!

East Yorkshire Buses are all set to run the 194 service through Slingsby from Monday 8 April 2024. The company has taken over the contact from Coastliner which had been running it since February 2018.

Apart from new look buses and (who knows?) new look bus drivers, any changes will initially be subtle, but they do include slight timetable changes. We cannot summarize them as the East Yorkshire and Coastliner websites do not exactly agree on the timetable to run from 8 April. So, if you are intending to use the bus soon, have a look below – we recommend staying flexible and patient!
