Firstly your site is great - thank you for such an excellent site :-)

My Dad used to drive buses for M&D. I recently went through some of this material and it brought back so many memories for him - fantastic.

Picture 375 was taken in Brishing Lane, with the trolleybus about to turn into Bell Road, on the Park Wood estate in Maidstone. I grew up in a house that was just to the right out of camera shot, or was probably still being built. The picture is taken before the Park Wood estate was finished, so the bus route was shorter until Wallis Avenue was finished in around 1965/1966. Once Wallis Avenue was completed, the buses did the full circuit of Wallis Avene, then back along Bell Road.
