about us

London Country South West (LCSW) was a bus operator in South East England and London.

It was formed from the split of London Country Bus Services in 1986 and operated a fleet of around

415 buses from 10 garages, with its headquarters in Guildford.

IOn 19 February 1988, LCSW was sold to the Drawlane Group. In 1989 the London & Country trading

name was adopted, being applied to a new two-tone green and red livery.

Garages at the time were Crawley, Dorking, Guildford, Leatherhead, Staines, Reigate, Addlestone,

Chelsham and Godstone, as well as an outstation of Crawley at Broadbridge Heath.


In November 1992, the Drawlane Group was restructured as British Bus.

In 1996, with the demise of the National Greenway project, a new garage was opened at Merstham to replace the facility at Reigate.

Also the Croydon, Dunton Green and Walworth operations were separated off into a new Londonlinks company, which was itself a subsidiary of fellow British Bus company Maidstone & District. The garages returned to London & Country management in late 1998, and in November 1999 became part of Arriva London.

On 1 August 1996, British Bus was sold to the Cowie Group, which in November 1997 was rebranded as Arriva.

In 1999, Leatherhead bus garage closed and for a short time buses for London Regional Transport contract buses were out-stationed at Fulwell bus garage.
