Time and the Centre of Earth

Ah! I see what you are asking.
The answer's easy.
The Greewnwich observatory on the outskirts of London. That's where logitudes are measured from so it must be the starting point.

OK, that's this thread done.

Or 'starting line'?

No, it's the starting point. The Greenwich meridian goes North and South from it. :-)

I don't believe there is an actual 'point' there. It's just a line drawn on the floor and the definition of the lattitude at Greenwich is quite another matter.
