Puzzle IconI was having trouble sleeping last night and I tossed and turned well into the night.

Our local town hall has a clock which strikes on the hour and also strikes just once on the half hour.

During one of my more awake moments I heard the clock strike once, but I could not tell what time it was.

Half an hour later it struck once again, but I still could not tell what time it was.

Finally, half an hour later it struck once again and I knew what the time was.

What time was it?

In the illustration we have a sketch of Sir Edwyn de Tudor going to rescue his love, who was held a captive by a neighbouring wicked baron.

Sir Edwyn calculated that if he rode at fifteen miles an hour he would arrive at the castle an hour too soon, while if he rode at ten miles an hour he would get there just an hour too late.

Now, it was of the first importance that he should arrive at the exact time appointed, in order that the rescue that he had planned should be a success, and the time of the tryst was five o'clock, when the captive would be taking afternoon tea.

The puzzle is to discover exactly how far Sir Edwyn de Tudor had to ride.
