Bus ac­cess to Master Brewer site

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - ROSE­MARY BOUNDEN Lea­side Court Hilling­don

YOUR ar­ti­cle of Oc­to­ber 21 ‘No Cir­cus Site for Tesco’ quoted Linda Harrison from East­cote speak­ing about the Master Brewer site be­ing ac­ces­si­ble by bus and train.

I would like to add that the U2 bus passes the former Master Brewer, the 697/698 go down and up Long Lane 3-4 times a day dur­ing school term only. And the Ox­ford Tube and X90 pass by with lim­ited stops be­tween Vic­to­ria and Ox­ford.

While the U1, U2, U3, U4, U5, U7 stop at Hilling­don Hospi­tal with con­nec­tions to Uxbridge (LT) sta­tion or Hayes and Har­ling­ton and Yiewsley and West Dray­ton main line sta­tions.

The A10 and 724 Green Line from Heathrow stop at Junc­tion 10 Field Heath Road with bus con­nec­tions to the hospi­tal or a short walk.

In the 1950s we walked across the fields to Hilling­don Hospi­tal and met folk who had trav­elled from Kent to visit friends and fam­ily. Only the 223 bus from Ruis­lip went to Hilling­don Hospi­tal and pos­si­bly on to Yiewsley and West Dray­ton and maybe Heathrow.
