Today we continue our nostalgic bus journey around the Isle of Wight from June 1984.

In these dark, dank days of November we have bus fan John Kirby, of Stubbington Avenue, North End, Portsmouth, to thank for breathing a little summer light into our lives.

This is the second part of his three-section trip.

We begin at Freshwater Bay and trace a route back up the east coast.
