Just in time for Winter

It might not look much, but this bus shelter is a major development for Moreton Hall. Thanks to local councillors, it has just been installed on Mount Road, serving the bus routes into Bury St Edmunds.

If anyone has stood waiting for a bus during the Winter, you will know how the cold winds blow in from Siberia. This shelter will definitely be a welcome addition to our neighbourhood.

If you haven't tried the bus route into Bury St Edmunds yet, the 83 service is very good and regularly leaves from this stop, just around the corner from Airfield Road. Take a look at the First travel site for times. Click Here for more info.

Just think, with Christmas coming up, there'll be no worries about parking. It will be good for the environment and takes only 10 minutes into the centre of town.

Ah, the luxury of a bus shelter. We know not of it. We had a bus shelter for about 20 minutes until the landowner decided to remove it with a tractor (or similar), it has never been replaced. Only in Suffolk eh?

I live a ten minute drive away from town on the Mildenhall Estate and on a good day it takes the bus 20 minutes. I can walk it in 25 - and keep my pennies firmly in my pocket.

I live 9 miles away from Bury and it takes the bus over an hour to get there!! Not a way to encourage environmentally friendly travel is it Councillors.

Very nice but green would have been a better colour me feels.

Hi Picklesmum - that's just not fair...although, I bet the tractor was an interesting sight for Pickle. It's just terrible that your bus takes 1 hour on what would probably a 20 minute journey by car. What you need is a bus that doesn't travel around all the villages and does a direct to Bury Route along the A14.

Hi Grumpyoldwoman - I can see how much sense it makes for you to walk. I sometimes walk from my house Moreton Hall. Downhill, it's about 30 minutes and uphill, just a little bit long ;-D

Hi Ingenious - You're right about the colour green, much nicer. BTW, councillors, should it be changed to green...please note, it wasn't me...or Ingenious Rose...she lives too far away ;-D
