Taking the record from Dunedin, New Zealand, Ffordd Pen Llech from the Welsh town Harlech has become the new steepest street in the world. Their bid has just recently been approved by Guinness World Records and with this, they hope to attract more tourists to visit their town.
The Guinness World Records said Tuesday that Harlech's Ffordd Pen Llech has a gradient of 37.45 per cent, two percentage points steeper than Dunedin's Baldwin Street. "The local community in Harlech has shown sheer will-power in their quest to earn Ffordd Pen Llech the title," Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, said in a press release.
