http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trentbarton said:
In October 1913 Trent Motor Traction Company was founded and commenced operating a bus service between Derby and Ashbourne. In November 1913 a second service commenced to Stapleford. By 1925 services were operating from Derby, Loughborough and Nottingham. As services expanded the business grew to seven depots.

During the 1930s some 52 smaller operators were bought out. In August 1949 Trent Motor Traction Company began to operate some services in partnership with Derby Corporation. In 1958 following the opening of the A52 motorway an express service commenced between Derby and Nottingham. In 1969 the company became part of the National Bus Company.

As part of the privatisation of the bus industry Trent was sold in a management buyout. In 1989 the business of neighbouring Barton Transport was purchased and placed into a separate legal entity[3] even though both subsidiaries combined their operations on a day-to-day basis. The separate Trent and Barton brands were brought together as 'trentbarton' in 2005.
Trent Barton is now a major bus operator in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire with a fleet of 277 buses and depots in Nottingham and Derbyshire.

This was actually intended to be an explore of some other nearby buildings which I'd reccied in the day but they'd been well locked up at night and there's a security chap who kept me on my toes when I came back at 2am!

My [phone] camera is terrible, so apologies for poor quality..

All the tables were laid out with names/companies written on as if for a fair or market.
