    Would you agree that Stratford upon Avon is the edge of the southern Midlands and marks the beginning of southern England aka. The south.

    And would you agree that Chesterfield in northern Derbyshire is the edge of the northern Midlands and marks the beginning of northern England aka. The North?

    The first map is nonsense as Gloucester is not in South Wales.

    The second two maps don't take into account that there is a Midlands area, not just a North and South.

    Stratford upon Avon is not far from Bicester and Oxford, and obviously Oxford is not in the Midlands, so somewhere between Stratford and Oxford lies the border between the Midlands and the South. As Stratford is a wealthy town, it kind of makes sense to think of it as the gateway to southern England

    Yes but the first image is not accurate as it labels the Cotswolds as part of South Wales lol

    Might be the craziest map I've ever seen.

    South Wales has invaded England and now has a border with East Anglia
    England has invaded North Wales upto and including Anglesea (which I'm pretty sure the locals there aren't happy about)

    I don't think the English would be happy with Anglesea either
