BAR103X was new on 1st March 1982 to Headingham Omnibus as fleet number L103.
L103 is a Plaxton Derwent bodied Leyland Leopard and carried the company’s traditional livery of Red & Cream initially with fleetname in block capitals on the front and later with the Lowercase fleetname as per the sides.
From Headingham L103 passed to Fowler’s Coaches of Holbech Drover for school work. L103 was sold again to Emblings of Guyhirn Cambridgeshire still carrying the de-branded Headingham Livery. During one of the popular Fenland BusFest events in Whittlesey, L103 became the first and only Leyland Leopard to ever operate the 701 service from Coates - Whittlesey - Peterborough as a commercial service.
Mark Judd purchased L103 from the company when it ceased trading in July 2015. He plans to restore L103 into full Headingham livery and has already spent much time and money on restoring the engine after a troublesome failure in 2013. Restoration is on-going and it is hoped to be completed very soon.
