The Delamere Meridian


More of you have been out walking on the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge and we have had some further enquiries about the Delamere Meridian.

We are, in part, reproducing a story we ran previously and we hope that this answers your curiosities.

Hidden away on land belonging to United Utilities and inaccessible to the public, is a trig point; close to which began the mapping of Britain. This humble concrete trig point is swamped by undergrowth and lies within a United Utilities enclosure but this site marks a location vital to the earliest Ordnance Survey maps.

The Delamere Meridian, a centre point from which early scale maps were measured and laid out.
