The part about the "80 minutes" could be a typo. As I mentioned, this was probably derived from a scanner trying to read an old library book. There are enough instances in the text that I quoted ("excellent road S^ miles long", "village to the pond, 6J miles") to cast a reasonable doubt about the 80. It might have been a 30 with a smudge in front of it.
