Rather than splitting the data into smaller squares, I used the process
described on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Using_OS_Shapefiles to
extract specific things, in my case waterways and woods. You just extract
the features you want in QGIS and the Python scripts can easily be modified
to add the correct tags for whatever you have extracted.
