Pleasure Beach Visitors

Five coaches of the Clarkes of London fleet parked up in the
rear yard at Great Yarmouth's Pleasure Beach yesterday
Regular contributor Rob Collins visited the tourist area of Great Yarmouth yesterday.

After consuming a portion of the local delicacy of fish and chips, he espied no less than five coaches from the London based Clarkes Coaches fleet parked in the rear yard of the Pleasure Beach attraction

As he was refused entry by security to get some close up photos, he had to settle for one picture from behind the security fence which shows all five coaches together

Clarkes was first established in 1958 and at the time traded predominantly as a small time haulier transporting coal within South East London area. Initially providing the odd trip to the seaside for the local children, the business soon developed into providing coaches for local schools and clubs.

Outgrowing the previous base in Anerley, South East London, Clarkes headquarters moved to the current three acre site at Kangley Bridge Road, Lower Sydenham in 1992. With purpose built offices, workshops and bodyshop, high level security and sufficient parking for up to 100 vehicles it is situated close to capital. Clarke's commuter fleet is located at the Kent depot

Many thanks for the report and photo Rob. Further information about the operator can be found on their website
