3rd October 2009, 09:49 PM
About 10 mins in the car although recently 20 - 25 mins due to road works
3rd October 2009, 09:50 PM
It's only about 3 miles but it takes about 15 minutes cos the roads are so tiny!
3rd October 2009, 10:01 PM
4 minutes in the car.... it's 2 roads neither of which get congested!
3rd October 2009, 10:04 PM
I keep the horses at mums, its about a 3 minute drive
3rd October 2009, 10:05 PM
I'm only about a 1/4 mile from the field so maybe 5 mins walking less in the car!
3rd October 2009, 10:25 PM
Two minutes in the car!
3rd October 2009, 10:31 PM
25 mins in the car! Bit of a pain sometimes. Its under 10 miles, but windy country roads!
3rd October 2009, 10:35 PM
About a minutes walk from my house, its round the corner.
3rd October 2009, 10:39 PM
15 minutes but when they re-open a road that's been closed due to a new housing estate being built it'll only take 10.

I think I'm about 3 miles away from the yard but theres lot of traffic lights and roundabouts on the way including getting down the road its on which has a college, and two schools. Sometimes takes me about 10-15mins
3rd October 2009, 11:05 PM
If I get a lift, about 10 minutes. But by bus, including walking from my house to the bus stop, about 20-25 minutes.

My summer grazing is about 5 mins walk away just outside the village, winter grazing is 5 mins by car - I'm pretty lucky really!

5 minute walk for me. Used to live 10 minute drive away from the yard I was on in Wigan, really bugged me.

10 mins by car. Previous yard was 35 minutes by car, which was a total pain as work was 40 minutes in the other direction.

mines a 10km journey and i have to bike both ways so cycle 20km a day normally takes about 20-30mins, roll on having a drivers license!!!
4th October 2009, 10:18 AM
Now mine are at my work is about 4 mins away on a good day - if there is something on at the 3 counties and i time it wrong it can take 15!!
When they were at the other field it was 2mins away from work, if i was going straight there it was still 4 mins though!
I used to bike there last summer and it would take me 20mins there and 15mins back :lol: Its all uphill on the way there!!
4th October 2009, 10:31 AM
30 Seconds walking, lol, just at the bottom of the yard
4th October 2009, 11:16 AM
Currently 30-40 mins depending on traffic, or I can go on the ferry and the total journey takes 20 mins.
Soon to be 10 minutes though, can't wait!

In the winter (when the tourists aren't about!) it takes about 10 -15 minutes. In the summer it can take anything up to an hour!!!!

2min in car, 10 walking, 3/4 on bike.
5th October 2009, 10:42 AM
I keep Doris at my friends place up the road and it takes me 3-5 minutes in the car, depending on traffic.
I can walk it in about 20 mins so it's good in emergencys, eg when I'm snowed in and can't get the car out.

5th October 2009, 11:00 AM
