Rather English - Stand on the Yorkshire Meridian

Greenwich isn't the only place in the country on which you can stand on the Prime Meridian, and the line stays on mainland England until it falls off into the sea at the rapidly-eroding cliffs of Tunstall in East Yorkshire.

The Yorkshire Meridian passes between Sunk Island on the Humber Estuary and the point - which was once marked with a trig point that has now fallen into the sea, and passes the village of Patrington.
