what walking speed are you using for that Dave ?

I am of the understanding that the day walking pace was 2.5mph approx and the night speed 3mph.

at 3 mph thats 88 yards per minute, so I make it nearly 17 minutes, not 23. just wonder if i am making a mistake somewhere?

Agree with 17 minutes actually. Thought I was giving ground.

Living in the Aussie bush,pretty used to walking speeds.

Local store is 350 away. When smoking I'd enjoy the landscape and take 7 minutes. Easily do it in 5.

Nearest Pub was ~ 16 Km. Used to do that in 2H40m without pushing it.

Depends.

Meh. Done the figures on Jack's walk home from the London Hospital along Hanbury Street to Finsbury Square many times. ~ 2 Km.

Not sure what held him up on Thursday nights.

Have a few ideas though.

Beats were divided in to two, day and night.

They were measured with a beat wheel and whilst not exactly matching, they endeavoured that the distances were roughly the same.

This resulted in a beat of roughly 30 mins in London, longer in the suburbs.

30 mins beat were commonly patrolled in the day. These were divided at night into two 15 mins beats.

Obviously timings were not exact, due to distance differations and incidents or duties which may occur on the beat.

Hope that helps.

Monty
