Whilst we are on USRNs (and UPRNs), I have updated
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ordnance_Survey_OpenData to include
them. The whole discussion on how they join up could merit a wiki section
or page of its own...somewhere to collect together all the snippets of
information.....just a gentle reminder that if we don't document stuff then
it disappears into the ether. Sure, it's on Talk-GB archive, but it's still
just talk.
