Iv'e only moved 10 miles north of Bulwell...........but i feel i'm in the North.........the accent is different

Regardless of geographical lines on a map linguists say that t'north starts at Hucknall as it appears that this is where the dialect changes from mostly southern to northern influences. I wonder if it is due to the influence of mining communities?

I thought the whole planet revolved around me ??

Definitely an East Midlander. 52yrs  living in West Mids, but I love Nottingham, my accent is still Nottm  based after all these years.

It can't be the East Midlands - because, by definition they are off-centre. For the same reason it cannot be the West Midlands either. So where the dickens are the Mid-Midlands - surely that is where

It was the instructor on my advance driving course, back in 1972. When we driving around that area he told me and I had no reason to doubt him. My one and only time I've ever driven around Birmingham. Must be a nightmare now.

I'd have job, he's probably passed away by now. Personally, I don't give a toss where the Centre of England is. As far as I'm concerned where I live is the centre of my world. ( What's  Wikipedia anyway Phil ?).

I think I'll go with the OS option.

Explain that theory then Phil. If it's one place in 2001, how can it change by 2019. I appreciate that the earth changes shape, but not that bleddy fast surely ?
