Long Forgotten Routes - Anglianbus 125

Norwich once had a large network of council subsidised services - today very few of the city services still exist.

Anglianbus one the contract in the early 2000s from Goldline to run the 25 between Drayton and Norwich. The area served in Drayton was untouched by any other service and it took an unusual route out of Norwich via Bank Plain, St Andrews Street, St Benedicts and Old Palace Road.

The service became the 125 to match the numbering system in place by Anglianbus. In 2010, the contract was taken on by First who rerouted their 29 from Taverham to serve Drayton School Road. Today, the 125's loose equivalent is the First 30.
