Since, south and north pages are busy, thought Iíd better kick this one back into gear.

Midlands definition?, according to my wifeís workplace(and her patch), itís as far south as Milton Keynes, Warwick, Worcester, Gloucester etc and as far north as Chesterfield and all that is south of the Humber inc. Scunthorpe, Grimsby, Lincoln, Doncaster on the east. Stoke and Crewe on the West, and as far south west as Hereford. Border at Wales is obviously the limiting factor westwards.

Hope that helps?, or do you disagree??? Laughing

In the middle of the midlands???

Iím in the 3 counties corner, in 10mins I can be in Leicestershire , Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire, all very midlands. Work in Warwickshire which is also midlands.

Lastly went round Solihull before C-word and Castle Brom a few weeks ago, got to see some old camouflage paint on part of the factory wall from WW2....all very midlands. 😀😀😀

Gloucester is south, not the midlands! South west strictly speaking but that would be another discussion forum. For work purposes, it could be included at a push but Iíd say the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire border would be the divide between the two areas. Smile

Just to note, Meriden in Solihull is actually considered to be the centre of England.
