Getting a postcode from a Grip Map Reference

Post  colin R on Mon Sep 03, 2012 9:41 pm

This is ideal for anyone using a sat nav to get to a start of a walk where the info shown is only a grid reference:

Go to [Only admins are allowed to see this link]

As a example type in The search box Sk266800 then click go

You will then see a map with an arrow pointing to the location! At the bottom of the page you will see a link that says "Click here to convert coordinates" this will then display ain a new window with text showing the nearest post code.

Hope this info is helpful to some of you.

The down side to this that you can still be a mile away from the start bounce

So it's good news and bad news lol. I've always said that a satnav should be used as an aid to finding somewhere, and not just as the be all and end all. It'll certainly be useful for finding a postcode when advertising a walk. Thanks a lot Colin for the info.
