Buses entering Cannon Hill Park
Buses entering Cannon Hill Park
The Outer Circle bus rally was an annual event run by the Aston Manor Road Transport Museum. Buses gathered in Cannon Hill Park, but there was also a road run around at least some of bus route 11, the Birmingham Outer Circle, which was Europe's longest urban bus route at the time. Here, two preserved West Midlands PTE Fleetlines, led by Park Royal bodied Daimler 4613, cross the River Rea into the park after participating in the road run, watched by a police officer on a motorcycle.
