Information on buses needed

Have your say

I am currently compiling a ‘History of Road Passenger Transport in Scarborough’ from the late 19th century to the present day and need some assistance from your readers.

Although amassing quite a lot of information about bus operations in the town, which is quite complex over the years, I need some additional information regarding the location of certain bus depots and operators headquarters in the town. I am aware that Robinsons operated its fleet of charabancs initially from the railway station yard and then moved their HQ to West Mount Mews in Westborough, a location I cannot trace. In addition they had a depot in Aberdeen Walk next to the Post Office and premises in Vine Street which is now Duggleby’s. This, in the 1930s, was leased by East Yorkshire and West Yorkshire before they both moved to Northway. I am also aware that the Palm Court Garage was United’s depot and that Westwood was a main terminus which is now the site of Tesco’s and that Hardwick’s had a depot at what is now the car park at the top of lower Victoria Road.

My problem? Just where abouts is West Mount Mews, and where exactly was the Northway terminus located, and was Somerset Terrace once a bus depot? Help!
