The parish council is pleased to advise that a weekly bus service to Banbury is now in operation. The Thursday service is provided by Ability Northants cic. (South Northants Council has provided a grant to the parish council to help fund the start of the service.)

It is necessary to register with Ability Northants, with no registration fee arising for the basic service, and then pre-book journeys. Maurice Cole has a supply of registration forms. Ability can also be contacted by phone at 07799 522097 to register and their website is

The service departs from Eydon, picking up at Culworth before coming to Thorpe. The Thorpe pick-up is scheduled for approximately 10.00am outside the Three Conies unless door-to-door Gold service registration has been effected. The bus is scheduled to arrive at Banbury bus station at 10.20am and will depart from there (opposite Wilko) at 12.30pm. If booked passengers do not have a bus pass, a standard fare will arise.
