Spent a lot of my youth and even up to today as my mum moved back here I thought I'd see what T/A had to see here. Although it's not much to see its a little tucked away and after getting a few wrong postcodes...More

Moved to Louth from Waltham Abbey, also on the Meridian Line. Somehow we found this a sign that we had done the right thing. 5 years on definitely the right move for us. Lovely, friendly town with lots going on.

I've been visiting Louth since I was a small boy. I remember my father showing me a line on a building and the path. We always used to park in the same car park and walk over the line. Over the years when ever I've...More

Sorry but this really is rather ridiculous isn't it? I was once a professional (blue badge) tour guide taking clients to all the tourist attractions in Greenwich, the real home of The Greenwich 0 degrees Meridian. Louth, near where I now live is also on...More

Like all these lines, you learn about them and unless you are paying attention, you pass them by, without knowing. I have passed by the Tropic of Capricorn and only took notice the second time. As you walk through Louth you see it quite easily...More

Spotted this in passing and my son was pleased to be able to stand with one foot east and the other west. It is not exactly an attraction but makes a nice talking point and excuse to bore the kids with facts about GMT and...More

You can follow the Greenwich Meridian Line three times in Lincolnshire. Cleethorpes, Louth and Boston. Louth has sighs in the Gatherams explaining all about the Meridian Line. The line does not pass through the middle of Louth, it passes more to the west nearer South...More

Really interesting find in Louth although it is hard to find just where it is. This is the Meridian line that passes through Louth. Where East meets West. You can find some information boards in the small park where the line crosses. Look for it...More

Popped over to Louth to look at this, following my accidental discovery of one of its partners in Cleethorpes. This line possesses a more dignified and stately elegance than, I now acknowledge, the Cleethorpes version which tends towards the brash and faintly superficial. It is...More
