Ive recently signed in to my Apple account on a couple of Apple items I haven't used in a year. I live in London UK, why am I being warned that a new location of Manchester about 200 miles away someone is trying to log in to a new location on these items?

As this is happening as a result of you logging into these devices it's likely that they are the devices mentioned In the alert.
Do you have location services switched on for these devices? What are they? Are we talking about phones or laptops or what? Do you have find my iPhone/Mac switched on? What operating systems are you using on each device.

Thanks for reply, yes location services on, Find iPhone is on, using latest IOS and OS on iPhone, iPod and PowerBook Pro. Changed my Apple ID PW the other day and it's always telling me someone is trying to log on in Manchester. Had many problems for years with logging on to Apple ID, there's a newish thread regarding that in this forum, earlier in the week, think that was to do with having a me.com ID.

That is likely the physical address of the company whose service you are using to connect to Apple is located. Whether that is your phone service provider or an ISP. That would be where the IP address assigned for their use (then from them to you) is located.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Ok, that's a new one on me. Been using Virgin for years and never had this before. In the past my location has gone down as very local.
