Very quiet?

Sundays are a nice day to work. Especially first thing in the morning. It's such a change from the weekday school time rush we have to work with. This morning i am in Ashton bus station about to leave on a 231. Again as in my last post a much complained about route. Basically because it now goes to the hospital on the way to Ashton from littlemoss. It does take a while longer but this is also down to the fact there is a stupid amount of running time from broadoak to Ashton. I could do it quicker on my bike. Anyway got this and then 217. But i'll moan about them later lol.


  1. What's the problem with the road from The Broadoak to Ashton? Why does it take so long? I remember when there were only 2 buses on the route- Hurst Circular that went anti-clockwise from Ashton via Mossley rd, Queens Rd, Broadoak Rd and Smallshaw Circular that went via Henrietta St/Broadoak, Queens Rd, Mossley Rd. (that's the one I caught at The Broadoak on my way to school).

  2. I haven't seen the new bus station as yet. I haven't visited Ashton or Hyde for many years, even though I have been back to the UK in 2005, 2006 and 2007. I am about to rectify that when I visit next month. Looks so peaceful at that time on a Sunday morning. Linda

  3. There was nothing wrong with the route it's about the timings, i think whoever did the timetables went around this part of the 231 route in a sinclair c5. Too much time.
