Hi and Good evening to all,
As this forum appears to be better than wilipedia for knowledge can someone answer this query
I have been given a map reference of 178/815887 and I am trying to understand it but no joy. Normally its two letters then 6 numbers which I can follow,but this ???? Either things are changing or I'm getting old
Thanks in advance of any answers

Hi Chris,

I assume you realised this was an OS Grid Ref, if not then that is what it was, Ordnance Survey Sheet 187 Grid Ref 815887.

I Googled 'Convert Grid Ref to Lat Long' and came up with this Website which gave me a Lat Long of 51.567958 0.617425
When copied and pasted into Google maps it takes you Here.

I hope this is where you where expecting to end up

Keith.

Thanks very much keith,I have obviously had a senile moment it gets to you after a while.
I did manage to find that reference but by going round the long way. Again many thanks.

Kieth, should that be sheet 178 and not 187. Hope he's not lost..!!
