Use  DEFRA’s “Magic” map, which allows you to stick coordinates in in a wide variety of formats, and more importantly provides tools for seeing where a place is in a wide variety of different referencing systems.

You can find it here: http://magic.defra.gov.uk/MagicMap.aspx

Specifically, entering “NU000525” (OS six figure refs, so lose a little precision) gives the museums at Fisher’s Fort in Berwick (http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1792339349)

and for the adjacent NT999525 refers to http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/71319888

What is the easiest way to locate national grid references on the map? We could then put notes on the map if there is no-one to check.

Hi,

   someone from Berwick-upon-Tweed has written to the OSMF board, mainly
to ask if it is ok to use our map in a local history book, but along the
side pointed out two issues with the map:

"The two Museum symbols at NU 00023 52563 and NT 99988 52538 are no
longer relevant as the museums closed several years ago and the area is
now private housing."

I'll leave it to you to figure out what these coordinates mean and which
museums may need to be checked ;)

Bye
Frederik
