Yes, Monty's Post;-)
I suspect what is illustrated might be the daytime beat

I'm guessing within this area, but then how does Winthrop Street fit in?

Maybe he did the Woods Buildings.

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.

Thanks Monty

So a 37 minute beat would not be impossible given ALL the internal roads?

Dusty that is great.

I had not included the two on the left of Brady street so that would push it up to around 40 minutes I guess For the whole beat. I will remeasure over weekend.

The route I quoted earlier post 3 or 4 I think says it's the evening beat and gives the external route only but adds internals and yards adding up to about 20 in total.

The report is listed in full post 26 thread PC Neil's route. Looks like Thain just drew the short straw And got along beat.

The very reason I am checking his beat Dusty.

He said he gave it to another officer, who if so was probably Neil. That must have been either when they left the station and started or at some point when they intersected.

Or Thain went to the slaughter house for his breaks which he was allowed and left it there.

Need to do some maths and see how often they would insect in Brady street..

Thanks for the help.

Default alternating route?

Having reread the various reports Thain gave at the inquest, he clearly says he passed Bucks Row every 30 mins.
The only ways that this can be so, given the distances of his full beat are:

1.He walked at a much faster pace than the standard 3mph. He would need to go at over 4mph.

2. Not every one of the internal roads was walked on every circuit of the beat. For instance on circuit one he may have checked Bath and Fosters and the surrounding roads; but not those in the northern section. While on circuit 2 that was reversed.

I wonder if anyone would care to comment on which they feel is the most likely ? Or do we think that Thain was not accurate with how long the route took him.

I made this map. It's based on the news paper report, but as I didn't have a period map, I had to use a modern one from Google maps, so the street plans might vary as the area has been developed considerable over the last 100+ years, but it's meant to just be a rough guide.

Going off subject slightly, I'm currently trying to ascertain the positions of the fixed points, once I have done this I'll be sure to post them onto the forum.

Hi All,

Given their two beats, it's nothing short of serendipity that PC Thain should appear at the Brady Street end of Bucks Row at the exact moment PC Neil was flashing his bullseye lantern for assistance.

Regards,

Simon

Neil must have thought it really was his lucky day when Mizen appeared from nowhere too.
