TQ4100 : A view from meridian to meridian

taken 3 years ago, near to Peacehaven, East Sussex, Great Britain

A view from meridian to meridian
A view from meridian to meridian
Looking from a spot on the WGS84 prime meridian (as near as a GPS could resolve it) towards the monument marking the Greenwich prime meridian. The discrepancy is not quite as large as it looks, as the view is not exactly east - west. About 6 m beyond the monument is a wooden stump believed to mark the Ordnance Survey prime meridian. The stump is the smallest of the features just to the right of the monument.
