Where In The World?

Overseas visitors often ask us for the locations of the small English villages that appear in these genealogy pages because these tiny towns simply do not appear in their non-UK atlases. In many cases, the best map for the job may be one of the 1:50,000 Landranger series which is produced by the Ordnance Survey and is available worldwide. Ordnance Survey grid references are also used in maps and atlases produced by the Automobile Association (AA), the British counterpart of the American Automobile Association (AAA).

The first column lists the name of the village, town or city and the second column lists the county in which the named place is currently found. Note that the English counties were reorganized in 1974. The third column gives the Ordnance Survey grid reference and the fourth column designates on which Landranger map the named place can be found.

The name in the first column is a link to streetmap.co.uk which will show you the location as a 3km-by-3km section of the Landranger map. The grid reference in the third column is a link to our Ordnance Survey Grid Reference to latitude/longitude converter which will show you the geographical coordinates of the specified location.
