Former bus turning circle, Cannock Road, Underhill - Geograph - 3896128.jpg
Former bus turning circle, Cannock Road, Underhill Now partly built over in the foreground, this patch of road was once used as a turning circle by trolleybuses (latterly on routes 12 and 13). The destination shown was "Low Hill (Pear Tree)", the Pear Tree being a pub out of frame to the left; nowadays, Low Hill is more associated with the interwar housing estate a mile or two west of here, and in fact the 1950s Underhill estate just reaches Cannock Road here (right). Nowadays, the main bus service along Cannock Road goes into the estate, leaving only the out of town route to Cannock serving this stop.
