We are very much a family business with a long history, dating back to 1920, when a service from High Easter to Chelmsford was operated, using a converted Model T Ford, this service is still running today using a more modern vehicle.
Today Lodge Coaches are a leading coach operator in the county of Essex, having received numerous awards for our brochures and coaches, both new and vintage.
We operate from our own purpose built premises with offices, workshop, bodyshop and vehicle storage areas and are based in the village of High Easter which is situated approximately midway between Chelmsford, the county town of Essex and Stansted Airport, only one hour from London.
I would just like to say thanks to all at Lodge Coaches and to tell you how much my sister and I enjoyed our weekend break to the Jurassic Coast, Paul is a good driver and a mind of information.
