Welsh town Harlech claims world's steepest street

"I can not say how pleased we are that Ffordd Pen Llech has now been recognised as the steepest street, not just in Wales, not just in the United Kingdom, not just in Europe, but in the entire world", said local resident Gwyn Headley, who instigated the community's Guinness World Records application.

The small town of Harlech in Wales has ousted Dunedin, New Zealand, for bragging rights to the world's steepest street.

Residents of Ffordd Pen Llech didn't seem to feel too bad about taking the title from New Zealand's Baldwin Street.

He said: "I feel sorry for Baldwin Street and the New Zealanders, but steeper is steeper".

News that Harlech had taken the Guinness World Record title for steepest street was met with jubilation by the town's residents, who are planning a party to celebrate.

He had first wondered about whether the street might be steep enough for the world record after his auto slid down it, despite the handbrake being fully locked.

"You can't argue with the facts, but obviously we'll still be the steepest street in the southern hemisphere and we'll still be an attraction for those who want to come and view what was the steepest street before this particular bid went up".

Young Thug Says Lil Nas X Shouldn't Have Come Out as Gay
In the BBC interview, Lil Nas X said he had received some homophobic abuse after coming out but that he was "not angry" about it. Most recently, he brought a variant with both that lovable yodeler Young Thug, and of course, WalMart's very own Mason Ramsey .

Ms Badhan said: "We're absolutely elated and exhausted of course after the hard work over the past year".

Harlech in Wales, previously known for its 13th-century castle, now has another claim to fame.

"I actually think if anything we'll start to see continued increases in visitor numbers to Baldwin St".

Mr Headley said: "Guinness World Records were ultra-specific in the criteria and although we were confident in meeting or exceeding nine of them, I was anxious about the tenth". Ffordd Pen Llech also had to meet ten selection criteria, including, among other things, that the road was a public thoroughfare, that it was fully surfaced and that it had buildings along the carriageway, according to the BBC.

"The local community in Harlech has shown sheer will-power in their quest to earn Ffordd Pen Llech the title", he said. The 68-year old has become somewhat of a tourist spectacle himself in recent years thanks to his habit of running and skipping up and down the street as many as 30 times a day.

Mr McNeilly said residents on the New Zealand street had to cope with a lot of tourists, especially from cruise ships at the nearby harbour. "I'm not going to get over this, this follows the cricket for me so we're still very angry". The new title which has already gained publicity on social media is expected to bring in lots of tourist to the lovely town.
