Colne Estuary Preserved Buses, incorporating

Scroll down for Upcoming events.

Colchester-based Colne Estuary Preserved Buses (CEPB) is a group of enthusiasts who own, restore and maintain heritage buses and coaches. Each vehicle has links to the owner’s interests. Group members and their friends and families often assist each other with knowledge and vehicle maintenance. This website provides information about our vehicles and their histories. The Suffolk Bus Preservation Group (SBPG) are part of CEPB dedicated to preserving Suffolk-based buses.
