Comments about this page

The Prince Regent famously won a bet against one of his more atheletic junior officers saying if given a 10 yard start and a course of his choosing, he could beat the officer to the finish. The bet placed, the Prince chose the Black Lion Twitten which joins the Ship Street Twitten as the course. As the Prince was a rather broad and portly gentleman, there was no way the younger officer could get past him for he was not allowed to touch his Royal personage.
