SK2514 : The furthermost point from the sea in the British Isles

taken 12 years ago, near to Coton in The Elms, Derbyshire, Great Britain

The furthermost point from the sea in the British Isles
The furthermost point from the sea in the British Isles
According to the good people at Ordnance Survey, the place that gets the dubious title of “The furthermost point from the sea in the British Isles” is at grid reference SK 257144.

This lies just east of Church Flatts Farm, approximately 1 mile south-east of Coton in the Elms, Derbyshire.

(This is not to be confused with the point which is at the centre of Great Britain, which uses the centre of gravity method to find the point at which a cardboard cut-out of Britain would balance on a pinhead - its centre of gravity).
