Safe to walk to Swords?

Post by albert » 20 Mar 2020, 00:04

Hey,

Doing some DIY & need a few small supplies from Airside retail...

I'd get the bus, but given the circumstances- I'm trying to avoid public transport...

Is it safe to walk?

I've done the google maps & it says it's ok..

Has anyone done the journey on foot?

Al.

I wouldn't recommend walking along the Hearse Road. If you get the bus out of peak hours it shouldn't be too busy which will give you an opportunity to keep your distance. It's all about levels of risk. Walking the Hearse Road would be a higher risk IMO.
Regards,

Ken.

I can lend you a bicycle? And there is a Chadwicks at the end of Turvey avenue, which is closer to you.

Thanks for the response guys - such sound neighbours we are fortunate enough to have 🙂

Doing some DIY & was going to pop down to B&Q but I've got enough to keep me going for now 🙂

Chadwicks Express in Turvey are usually cheaper than B&Q or Woodies too.
