Around Bath’s Walls in 14 minutes

It was said (allegedly) that you could walk the circumference of Bath’s medieval walls in twelve minutes. So on Tuesday 1st March I set off with stopwatch in hand to see how long it really took.

On the first lap the stopwatch misbehaved (it is WWII vintage!) – no time recorded (but I was walking anticlockwise…..).

So with both wrist watch and stopwatch checked and primed, I set off again (this time clockwise for safety). At a steady walking pace, following the diversion through the M&S service tunnel, I recorded a time of exactly fourteen minutes on both timepieces.

Could it be done in twelve? Without trotting? Powerwalkers will say yes.
