When fbb was just a wee lad (not so wee!) he could have ridden his (t)rusty velocipede or been taken in daddy's car down Rushmere Road (top to centre), crossing "the cut" and joining the Bedford Road. Turning left at the bottom, he would come to the Britannia Inn (left), see Rush Mills (right), cross the Northampton to Wellingborough railway via a level crossing, the lurch sharp left and continue along the Bedford Road.
Surprisingly their succesors, Stagecoach, still do - mostly.
The 41 runs hourly to Bedford but 43 is independent of Stagecoach.
Hardingtone has a service 7 every 30 minutes (7A on Sundays).
We will look at routes to Brackmills itself tomorrow.
