0650 Axe Valley Travel [AVT] service 885 to Axminster
This (commercial) service runs hourly Monday to Friday daytimes, every two hours on Saturdays and connects nicely with the trains to London. Auntie Frances, AVT's redoubtable boss, usually uses her single decks during the day, but this duty needs capacity during term time for happy little school children.
But the Marine Place stop remained deserted.
The screeching gull winds slowly o'er the sea,
The gard'ner slowly toils his weary way,
And leaves the world to silence and to me.
Their sober journeys maybe made each day;
Along the cool sequester'd vale of life
They seek to travel onwards round Lyme Bay.
