Trams and buses in the Borough of Bexley

Historical Society member Richard Diment has had a life-long interest in the development of trams, trolleybuses and buses, each of which have played an important role in the economic and social history of Bexley over the last century. He has prepared a series of pieces looking at the history of road-based public transport in the area covered by the current Borough of Bexley.
