Centre of England

posted in: Observations | 2

Mopping up and correcting road names in the rural wilds of Solihull saw me in Meriden where I came across an ancient memorial cross reputed to mark the centre of England. I know it’s a complex mathematical problem but has anyone ever located the precise point that is the centre of England? Perhaps it would be better not to know as it spoils the folklore!

    I’ve always taken Meriden to be the centre of England but Wikipedia suggests:

    Lindley Hall Farm, Leicestershire
