Re: ...... "along the Salt Road" !

[quote=ANDREW post_id=5627 time=1528883495 user_id=56] If my eyesight is correct , there only appear to be the new green signs in Bromsgrove bus station and in Droitwich. I have not ventured further south than Droitwich or indeed past the top of Golden Cross Lane in Marlbrook on the "Saltroad" thou...

Redditch Thursday 3 May 2018.

MAN 12.240 with Plaxton Centro bodywork was my transport from Kidderminster to Redditch running nearly 30 minutes late.
