This bus was new to Hazell in Northew who traded as Carmel Coaches in September 2005 for local services around Devon and Cornwall. From 2015 it saw service in various brief spells with Filers Coaches in Ilfracombe before passing to Turners Coaches of Chulmleigh in 2016 and later to Dartline in 2017. It joined The Big Lemon fleet in August 2019 and is used on both our 47 and 52 routes.
