I remember going to the Charles Napier when I was 9 or 10 with a school friend - Alan Weatherspoon - whose parents took it over in the mid-60's. We were at Greet Primary School together. I don't recall what we drank !

I have already done the number 11 route on another couple of forums and also the 29  as well. They were quite hard for me as I had to research them having never used either of them, I'm not really a fan of public transport and even before I had a driving licence at 17 years of age I often chose to walk either than use buses.


Though having done these routes once they would be much easier to repeat and I could also add any recent images I have collected. So lets get the festive season over and see what the new year brings.

After passing my old local the Talbot on the corner of Larches Street we then pass under the railway bridge and arrive at Moseley Road where we started our journey.

We are now approaching Ladypool Road before crossing over we take a look back the way we have come then continuing on we pass a car sales pitch that was next to Moydens Garage or Turnpike Service Station if you prefer that name.

After turning into Stoney Lane after a few yards we make a right turn at the Lion & Lamb into Highgate road where on the right we can see the bundy clock outside the Brewers Arms. Then we start to make our way up Highgate road.
