Went for a stroll to day and thought we would take a stroll up to the haven site and then come back into cleethorpes by walking on the sea front passing the meridian line.a bit cold but worth it

I think it's brass. I'm guessing it's in the correct place. Easy to get to. There's also a solid globe.

Not many people knew about the Greenwich Meridian Line even though there were many people walking in the area. A couple of benches are near the Meridian Line as well as a signpost with miles to North Pole, South Pole, Sydney, New York, etc. A granite globe has been placed there sponsored by local businesses with information board telling visitors about the attraction.

I know it's only a piece of metal stuck in the ground, but it's a significant piece of metal.
A very historical important piece of history.
