This blog documents the research I am undertaking to produce a community heritage project on the 213 bus route which connects Sutton to Kingston upon Thames. Blogs will cover diverse topics from: heritage literature and community engagement projects, local history research undertaken along the 213 route, random musings and eavesdropped conversations from the bus, and technical details from Transport for London and bus enthusiasts.
