Who we are

Thirty years ago, a man called Dennis Baynes had a good idea...

His chicken farm and bed & breakfast business at Bridge End Mill in Allendale near Hexham in Northumberland weren't keeping up with the growing demands on the Baynes family. So Dennis bought a Volkswagen Dormobile and started ferrying locals around to make ends meet.

When young Nigel Baynes returned from seeking his fortune in London a few years later, he took over from Dennis as Allendale's no. 1 'odd-jobber' – adding landscape gardening, calor gas sales, a milkround, and being a part-time fireman, to Allendale's quaint one-man taxi service.

Thirty years and a lot of hard work has grown Baynes Travel into a business that Dennis would have been proud of. The chickens all retired long ago along with the clapped out Dormobile, and Bridge End Mill is now home to a modern fleet of cars, people carriers and coaches carrying passengers from across the region of Northumberland.

But Nigel still holds to Dennis' philosophy of always working hard and trying your best at whatever you set out to do. It's not a very sophisticated business strategy but it seems to work today as well as it did thirty years ago.
