According to the Ordnance Survey, the geographical centre of Great Britain (factoring in its 401 associated islands) lies at unmarked point surrounded by peat bog on Brennand Farm, about four miles north-west of Dunsop Bridge. This BBC page goes in search of it armed with a GPS.

The Northumberland town Haltwhistle also claims to be the centre.
