The Pardoner's Puzzle





(CANTERBURY PUZZLES)



The gentle Pardoner, "that straight was come from the court of Rome," begged to be excused; but the company would not spare him.

He explained that the puzzle was to start from the large black town and visit all the other towns once, and once only, in fifteen straight pilgrimages. Try to trace the route in fifteen straight lines with your pencil. You may end where you like, but note that the omission of a little road at the bottom is intentional, as it seems that it was impossible to go that way.
