Well, it's 250 miles so even averaging 80mph it'll take 3 and a bit hours, and the traffic on the M5/6 can be hideous, esp through the roadworks round the SAtafford services.

I reckon it'll take 4hrs allowing for traffic and wee breaks, maybe a bit more.

try looking on the AA routefinder... it shows milage and average time.

MrsBadger Thu 22-Feb-07 14:18:34

oh, meant to say, even if it takes 4 hrs it's hardly longhaul, is it?

so embarassed I'm on the long haul thread! hehe

The distance from Gretna Green to Gloucester is 253.6 miles. Assume an average walking speed of 3 miles an hour (20 minute miles).

So, 253.6miles divided by 3mph = 84.5 hours

This distance is on motorways and dual carriages ways though, so walking on them wouldn't be possible so an alternative and, therefore, longer route would probably be required.

LOL, I miss read this as how long to walk it!

mrcandmre Thu 22-Feb-07 14:23:47

LOL!
I thought to myself....84 hours....f\$ that..LOL

No, I'm just after the average person's driving time+wee wee breaks.

LOL!
