I have been playing with the Ordnance Survey 50k gazetteer to see if it
looks useful (very simple search tool at

As a 'point of interest' database it does not have anywhere near as much in
it as OSM does, which is quite nice really, so it is less useful from that
point of view, so I probably won't bother extending the search tool to
display them on a map as I had intended.

It does have quite a lot of named hills, and farms which might not be in OSM
though, which could be useful for countryside mapping -  would it be useful
if I were to do a query to look for things that are in that database, but
not the OSM one?
