Letter: Greenwich meridian

Sir: I must respond to a comment made by Michael McCarthy in his article on the Greenwich meridian ("Time line is put on the English map", 31 December), where he states that the meridian "just" misses Louth. For many years there has been within the town of Louth a brass strip inlaid in the pavement marking the meridian's passage through the town, together with a commemorative plaque.

Have we been mistaken all these years?


Louth, Lincolnshire
