Midland “Red”

Service 365: Service History


Service 365

Before the Second World War, Service 365 was operated by Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company Limited (BMMO—Midland “Red” Motor Services) on Wednesdays and Saturdays only between Tewkesbury, Bredon and Overbury.

After the war, BMMO operated Service 365, Service 366 and Service 367 as a group of services running between Worcester, Broadheath and Martley. Journeys that operated as Service 365 continued past Martley to serve Clifton-On-Teme and terminated at High House crossroads.

The High House variation of Service 365 had been withdrawn by the early 1970s, but route number 365 was reused by Midland Red Omnibus Company Limited (MROC) from April 1976 when Service M52 was renumbered to Service 365. This “new” services was very short-lived as it was withdrawn on Friday 1st October 1976 with the closure of Malvern depot.
