St Nicholas Church



At Abbotsbury is St Nicholas Church. This dates from the 14th century but has had various revisions in its time. The tower contains three bells dating from 1773. The chancel still has its plastered barrel roof and fine altarpiece. There is also some painted glass from the 15th century, a stone effigy of one of the abbots, and a Jacobean canopied pulpit. English Heritage has designated it a Grade I listed building.

Bus Ticket
The ticket used on the day of travel was an Explorer.

Operator/Route No./Branding
The trading names of bus operators often change over time. In all instances, we use the trading name in effect at the time of travel. Similarly, route numbers and branding are also subject to change. Again, we use the route number and branding in effect at the time.

When we list a town, city, etc. in FULL CAPITALS, this indicates that the full bus route starts/ends here. If we list a town, city, etc. with only an Initial Capital letter, this indicates that the full bus route starts/ends at some point before/after this.

The location of the bus stop (departure point) used at the start of the route stage.
