I know what you mean, but even I (a still more extreme southerner) wouldn't 
describe the Berkshire Downs as 'central'!

I think the heart of the England must be somewhere round York. The Pennines 
are clearly a kind of spine, as has often been noted - and the Black Country 
is a kind of nicotine-stained, tarry lung. Berkshire works out by my 
reckoning somewhere in the groin area - and Swindon, by popular consent, is 
Port Esquiline.
