Lyn Tile Cross bus terminus is still there minus the clock although its for the 17 bus now. The 14 which used to stop there goes on, I think th Chelmsley Wood via Marston Green.

Thanks Phil I recommend anyone from Brum and the 14 Bus route area to take a look. I noticed at Tile Cross the old Malt house pub, of course now long gone.

The only pity is that it was filmed of an evening and it is pretty dark in places. If it had been filmed a midday on a bright summers day it would have been great.
