I'm working a story currently and I ran into what could be a time management issue.
In my story I have a young woman (late teens-early 20's) walking from her home to town, having promised she would be back that same day. However I am now crunching numbers to make sure I did not over estimate her walking speed. Keep in mind this is a young lady that is part of a well off family, to give an idea of what she would be wearing. And while walking leisurely was common in this time in England, would the distance of six miles in north central England be something she was confident she could do quickly?
Most of the estimates of time I can find say it would take about 2 hours to walk that distance, so that is four hours if we count the return trip, allowing her to plan for maybe a couple of hours in town. (For story reasons she does not do the trip back, I just want to know if her plan would have been possible)
