 Claims to be centre of England
According to the roadsigns as you enter, Morton is the geographic centre of England. There is no current documentary evidence to support the geographical veracity of the claim made on the road signs. The Ordnance Survey define Fenny Drayton to be the Geographical centre of England, and Coton in the Elms to be the Farthest point from the Sea. Historically Meriden has been regarded as the centre of England for over 200 years.
