    Bob moved from Northern England to Southern France

    I am wondering if used the directions "north and south" correctly in my sentences.

    1. Bob moved from Northern England to Southern France.
    2. Bob moved from the north of England to the south of France.

    Re: Bob moved from Northern England to Southern France

    You've used "north" and "south" correctly. Northern and Southern should not be capitalized in the first sentence. Capitalize the Northeast or the Midwest only when they're a name for a region.
