Somerset Space Walk



This is a one in 53,000,000 scale walk along the solar system starting in Taunton and heading off along the Bridgwater & Taunton Canal.

The walk is 13 miles long centred on the sun at Maunsel Lock.

In the middle of the stone you will see a steel needle, perched atop this is a scale model of Pluto!

Note that the scale is actually 1:530,000,000, not as stated above (look at the inscription on the statue).

At 1:53,000,000 the Sun's model would need to be about 20m in diameter, and it would be over 60km (37miles) away from Pluto...
