Weekday services were contracted by Derbyshire County Council to a small company called Maun International based in Sutton-in-Ashfield. In May 1987 the 240 was renumbered 140 and a summer Sunday service to Matlock was provided by Chesterfield Corporation by extending the number 17 Chesterfield to Matlock service to Crich. Over the years the tenders changed and for a short while Stagecoach registered some 140 journeys commercially.2. Arrival at Matlock Rail Station. (Before the first Matlock bus station opened c1953, Midland General buses used to terminate in the station yard a few yards from here).
3. Back at Crich Town End at 13:58.
4. Finally back in 1959 I was a regular customer in Harrison's shop for Lyons fruit pies and bottles of pop. The shop has now been converted into an attractive tea room.
