    The 28 and 391 serve West Kensington, you're probably thinking of Barons Court the next stop along.

    Nethertown, Braystones & Sellafield stations on the Cumbrian Coast line have NEVER had a bus service. Seascale, Drigg & Ravenglass used to be served by Cumberland Motor Services (routes 9, 12 & 13 in various permutations), until Stagecoach took over. I don't think Bootle & Silecroft have a bus service - Stagecoach again. Did Foxfield (Between Barrow & Millom) ever have a bus service?

    I doubt if Georgemass Junction has a bus service - it does not really have a road! David

    What do you mean by ''does not really have a road' -the A9 goes over on a bridge jyst east of the station! The nearest bus is the 82, 5 minutes walk away

    The 82 serves the road end as @gnolife says. Additionally the X82 actually crosses the bridge that goes over the top of the station!

    That depends whether you're counting Dent village as being different from Dent Station (I realise they're some distance apart). The W2 does serve Cowgill which is close to the station on a Wednesday.

    The S1 runs all year on Saturdays, not just in the summer.

    Thats asking for the old joke

    Why is dent station so far from Dent village?
    so its near the railway lines.

    There again, Dartmouth had a train station but no trains!

    Selling in Kent, in between Faversham and Canterbury. No school services either if I'm correct.

    While there is a small settlement around the station, the actual village is further down a lane, which I'm not sure I'd want to brave walking down.

    Staying on the Faversham to Dover line, there is also Adisham. No regular bus service, although there are still two public registered bus routes, the 89B run by Stagecoach - one journey From Aylesham to Canterbury in the morning, and one journey Canterbury to Whitfield in the afternoon - and also the SS run by Regent Coaches, one return journey from Aylesham to the primary school at Adisham. They are publically registered so anyone can use them, but not sure why they would if they weren't a school pupil.

    Havenstreet on the Isle of Wight had its bus service withdrawn a few years ago due to council funding issues. The Steam Railway station is open about 200 days a year.

    Ashey, a request stop on the same Steam Railway, has never had a bus service.

    Local residents do use both these stations occasionally.

    I can think of these two stations which would definitely both fall in to this category:

    • Crowhurst (Sussex)
    • Stonegate (Sussex)

    They are both very far away from any bus route. They both get no bus services serving them at all. No public bus services. No school bus services. No community bus services. No supermarket bus services. Absolutely nothing. Both of them are at least around a 40 to 45 minutes walk to the nearest bus stop.

    Depending on your definitions you could possible count these four as well:

    • Doleham (Sussex)
    • Southease (Sussex)
    • Three Oaks (Sussex)
    • Winchelsea (Sussex)

    However all four of these are located within just a 10 to 15 minutes walk of a bus stop with at least an hourly bus service.

    These are the only ones that i can currently think of at the moment.

    Battlesbridge has no Bus service. There is a height restriction on the Railway bridge ruling out double deckers and also weight and width restrictions on the bridge over the River Crouch.

    Ah, OK. I used to use it quite often, but I don't live in London any more.

    Even when it ran, it was a bit of a walk to the RV1 from Covent Garden (for Central London). Now it doesn't the nearest stop is only 400ft further away.
    And it is only a 7 minute walk between the two.

    Stagecoach 100 serves Winchelsea every hour.

    The Stagecoach 'Wave' 100 route serves the village of Winchelsea, but the station is about a mile away down a country lane. So it depends how you define it. The station is actually addressed as Winchelsea though.
