We are the Brighton and Hove group of the national Ramblers. Walking and socialising in and around the South East of England.
does anyone know a free website to convert the grid references to post code or just to be able to view where the grid references are on a map as I have no clue how to find the start of the walks.
You could also try converting grid references via the website at the following address:- http://www.nearby.org.uk/coord.cgi?f=conv
The conversion then contains a link to look-up the nearest equivalent postcode. I find it useful for my sat-nav. Hope this helps.
This is the site I use for converting a grid reference into a post code or
vice versa :-
And you can find where a grif ref is on the map using the old Streetmap site below
(Zoom out to get OS Explorer 1:25000 scale)
Great for walks programme co-ordinators & walk leaders as well ! :-)
I have a related question. I would like to place the cursor on a map and for it to tell me the OS Grid reference at that point. This would be useful for walk leaders, for example.
I have tried Clive's suggestion of streetmap/newdefaulte2 but this does not show a map. I do use the OS overlay for Google Earth, which gives almost what I would like but it does not show the next level down, which is needed for map references.
Does anyone know of software that shows the 100 metre square OS reference by moving over a map ?
Thanks for any information.
If you zoom out on the displayed map shown by streetmap/newdefaulte2 , it will give you the OS Explorer 1:25000 scale, otherwise you will only see an A-Z style streetmap.
Hope this helps.
You are 100% right ! It performs exactly as you say it does and it and it provides the co-ordinates just as I was hoping to find. This is useful ! Many thanks,
