Enigma 203: Round walk
From New Scientist #1349, 17th March 1983 [link]
The plan shows the layout of paths in our local park. At each of the six junctions of paths there is a statue. The shortest route (on the paths) from Disraeli to Victoria is bound to take you past George V only. From Disraeli it is the same distance to Eros as it is to the Unknown Warrior.
I usually choose a walk which starts and finishes at Churchill and passes each of the other statues only once, but I choose it so that the is no other shorter “round walk”.
Last week one stretch of path was closed for repair. This meant that the shortest distance (on paths) from George V to Disraeli was over twice what it was previously. Also, I could not go on any of my usual “round walks” so I chose a new shortest route in the circumstances. As usual it visited each statue just once except for starting and finishing at Churchill. Also I chose the walk and the direction which ensured I passed Eros as soon as possible.
What was the order in which I passed the statues? (C – – – – – C)
