A village in Shropshire would become the exact centre of the UK if Scotland became independent, Ordnance Survey (OS) has calculated.

Scottish independence is the subject of a referendum on Thursday.

OS said the centre of Great Britain had been “hotly disputed” for decades, but for the first time it had calculated the results for the UK as a whole.

It said a field near High Ercall would become the centre if Scotland became independent.

The field south of Shawbury is at grid reference 357767 317879.

この新おへそのEracall Magna というのはどんな村かといいますと、Shropshire州の美しい村の一つです。

全人口はわずか1679人でです。

High Ercall, also known in the past as Ercall Magna, is a village in the borough of Telford and Wrekin and ceremonial county of Shropshire, England. The civil parish is still called Ercall Magna, and had a total population of 1,679 at the 2001 census.[1] The parish also includes the villages of Rowton, Ellerdine, Cold Hatton, and a number of small hamlets. Its name is locally pronounced “Arkel”.
The village lies on the junction of the B5062 and B5063 roads.
