Working out WAB Square?


#1

Am I missing something, or has the facility to convert a postcode into LR coordinate no longer available in Streetmap?

After entering the pc just under the map (in very small lettering) it says:-

Click here to convert coordinates. For example here is my pc:-

OS X (Eastings) 570088
OS Y (Northings) 206827
Nearest Post Code CM1 1TN
Lat (WGS84) N51:44:04 (51.734347)
Long (WGS84) E0:27:42 (0.461739)
LR TL700068
mX 51400
mY 6718663

I have used this to get the nearest pc from a NGR.

Thanks guys, all sorted. Mind you, they could have made the lettering a bit larger :frowning:
