THE MERIDIAN LINE Set in the Cleethorpes coastal path is a steel plate marking the line of the Greenwich Meridian, the worlds prime meridian used for measuring longitude and calculating time.In 1884 Greenwich Meridian was established by international agreement as the line of zero longitude to be used as the standard for time reckoning throughout the world.When the Marine embankment was built between Cleethorpes boating lake and the sand dunes at Humberston Fitties in the early 1930's a metal plate was set in the pathway.If you stand on the Meridian Line with your watch showing Greenwich Mean Time then you will truely be able to tell the correct time of day. That time will be especially significant at mid-day because the word Meridian derives from the Latin word Meridies meaning mid-day.
