Hebble Bus CompanyRef H2251
Transport company formed by Oliver & Charles Holdsworth on 1st December 1924.

They provided local services, and services to Manchester, Leeds and Bradford. The buses operated from the Ward's End bus station where their buses were able to load and unload without plying for hire on the public highway, which was not approved of by Halifax Corporation, whose trams and buses they were competing with. The company had frequent disputes with Halifax Corporation who had their own rival bus and tram services. Later things settled down and they were able to operate from the streets.

The company employed non-Union labour and was unaffected by the General Strike of 1926.

In 1928, they took over Hugh Brigg of Wilsden and ran services to Bingley.

In 1929, they took over the Calder Bus Company.

On 2nd May 1929, the company was bought by the London, Midland & Scottish Railway.

In 1930, it became Hebble Motor Services Limited.

In the 1950s, they took over several smaller companies.

In the 1970s, after various mergers, they were absorbed into the West Riding Group and then the National Bus Company

Helias appeared in the Pipe Roll in 1166 fined 1 mark for concealing a plea of the Crown. His brother Richard de Tong was also fined 1 mark for the same offence.

Helias was listed in the Liber Niger Scaccario of 1166 as holding of Henry de Laci (Lacy) a quarter knight's fee.

He witnessed a charter (Ch. 69, EYC vol. 8) by Hamelin earl de Warenne to Matthew de Horbury, [1164-96].

The only time that a place is added to his name was when he witnessed two grants by Robert de Lacy as Elias de Tong [1177-1193]. His brother Jordan also used de Tong on one occasion, but the only brother who kept the name de Tong was Richard
