About

Seaview Services Ltd

In 1922 Seaview businessman Richard Newell, owner of Seafield Garage, introduced a bus service between Seaview and Ryde using a converted wartime ambulance.



DL 2930 Wolseley 14-seat bus "1st Licenced 9.3.1922

This is quoted as ex. War Dept ambulance, built c.1914 - but not issued with civilian registration (Index Mark) as DL 2930 until above date, again to Richard Newell, Seaview (St.Helens Parish), I.W.
DL 2929 Ford 'T' 14-seat bus. 1st Licenced 9.3.1922 to Richard Newell, Seaview (St.Helens Parish), I.W.

This is quoted as ex. War Dept ambulance, built c.1914 - but not issued with civilian registration (Index Mark) as DL 2930 until above date, again to Richard Newell, Seaview (St.Helens Parish), I.W.
At the time the service ran under the name of "Newell's Express Motor Service", but the company was later to become known as Seaview Services.

Towards the end of the decade fierce competition on the route made it necessary for Newell to increase and update his fleet of vehicles and also expand his operations to include excursions from the village to various locations in the Isle of Wight.

Since 1979, the Robinson family took over Seaview Services and have been running the business successfully ever since we started.
