Record bid may be an uphill task
A ROAD in North Wales could be in the running for a Guinness World record.
Fford Pen Llech in Harlech is, according to resident Gwen Headley, steeper than the road that currently holds the record for the most punishing gradient in the world.
Baldwin Street, Dunedin, New Zealand, may face a challenge from the Harlech street.
Mr Headley, 72, said: “At its maximum, the slope of Baldwin Street is about 1:2.86 (19 degrees or 35%). For every 2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the elevation changes by a metre. Clearly, Ffordd Pen Llech in Harlech is steeper than Baldwin Street in Dunedin.”
He wants Guinness World Records to examine the claim.
