Greenwich Meridian Line

Greenwich Meridian Line

Where east meets west, the Greenwich Meridian Line is located along the coastal path close to the Meridian Showground. 

The line has been marked in Cleethorpes since the 1930s when Hadfields of Sheffield presented a plate to be laid in the path and to test their new non-corroding steel.  

Walkers can enjoy the Greenwich Meridian Trail, a long-distance walk of approximately 273 miles that follows the line of the Prime Meridian starting from the Prime Meridian obelisk at Peacehaven in East Sussex and ending on the coast of Sand le Mere in East Yorkshire.   

Accessibility: Fully accessible to everyone as it is located on a public footpath.

Groups: Open to groups of any size. 

Families: Family friendly.
