Must See 16/07/2019

The Guinness Book of World Records has announced Dunedin's Baldwin St is no longer the steepest street in the world.

Baldwin St's claim to fame has been successfully challenged by another in the Welsh town of Harlech.

The minor road Ffordd Pen Llech is the steepest in the UK- and now the world.

In an article published on Tuesday, the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed Harlech was officially home of the world's steepest street.

"The record beats Baldwin St in Dunedin, New Zealand which has a ratio of 1:2.86.

"Baldwin St has held the record for over a decade."

The Guinness Book of World Records says Harlech has a gradient of 1:2.67.

More to come.
