Welcome to the Southampton & District

Transport Heritage Trust Website

The Southampton & District Transport Heritage Trust (S&DTHT) was established in 2001 and is dedicated to the preservation of former Southampton buses and other vehicles from around the local area. The Trust provides an opportunity for many to get involved with the preservation and operation of Southampton’s heritage transport. The activities of the Trust revolve around the preservation and restoration of vehicles together with social meetings of members and their guests.

Please take the time to have a look through our website for information about the Trust and vehicles associated with us, as well as the history of Southampton's transport.
