The origins of Hulleys can be traced back to 1914 when Henry Hulley purchased a Ford Model T taxi. In 1921 a bus was purchased to operate a service from Bakewell to Chesterfield. In 1925 a service from Bakewell to Youlgreave commenced. By 1934 further growth had seen the fleet expand to seven buses with excursions operated to York, Skegness, Southport and Blackpool. In the 1970s the business was sold to JH Woolliscroft & Sons.[2]

ServicesEdit

As at December 2014 Hulleys operated 16 routes.[3]
