    Which Swinton? (according to my software, there are five in the UK).

    Assuming you mean the one in Lancashire, 4.3 miles (as the crow flies).

    Yes, and that's the one we've both given you information for. :)

    My software claims 4.7 miles by road, but I guess it depends where you start and end. :)

    It's probably like any other part of the country it has it's good and bad spots. Go there and have a look if youre buying property or something like that.

    Depends where in Swinton, some bits are extremely rough, there's a large run down council estate that i wouldn't like to be in on a dark night, but other bits are ok. One or two nice pubs in Worsley, I believe Worthy drinks over that way.

    As for getting to Manchester, its easy enough, Metro runs to Eccles is which is only down the road.

    I live in Swinton. Full of chav scum. Main pub in the centre got closed after the bouncers kicked a man to death. Wouldn't chose to live here if the rent wasn't so cheap, but despite that me and the missus are looking to move somewhere nicer.
