Bus Stop Location ( SMS code ) shown thus in “Ken Bus User”

The two Bus Stops at the top of Priory Road have now been registered with the NaPTAN database though one is usually used by the 539 from Coventry Abbey Hill ( wardpajg ), and the other by school buses Abbey Hill ( wardpajm ).
Moreover, when buses are diverted because of Warwick Road closure on a Saturday, both these stops are used by all the buses in Kenilworth – X17, 11, Unibus U2, 16 & 539 !
However, neither Google Maps nor Google Street View are sufficiently up-to-date to show these bus stops.
