Southend Sunbeam/Park Royal double decker 145, BDA365, ex-Wolverhampton, on the Western Circular stands at the stop at the east end of Fairfax Drive (just opposite the Westcliff depot) on 2nd October 1954.
It will turn right here and go up Prittlewell Hill into Southend. On the left, just outside the entrance to the park, was the Priory Park turning circle, first used at Whitsun 1926, when the Prittlewell route was extended to that point. The rather elderly cottage and shop on the other side of the main road was a landmark for years, but was later replaced by a modern building.
