what use is a strip of brass on the pavement of Greenwich to sailors?!?!?



the strip has nothing to do with sailors, its the direction its pointing that give the sailors a sense of direction, were is north and south.

You'll be lucky to see stars anywhere in England. It's very rare to see many stars in the sky at night. You might see a few but not enough to tell you where you were.
