OS maps are divided into numbered squares. These squares can be used to give a place a four or six-figure grid reference. It is important that you know both four-figure and six-figure grid references.
Make sure you know that:
The six-figure reference 207834 on the map below shows a church in Bamford.
Note: when using an OS map to answer mapping questions, you MUST always give grid references and/or map evidence in your answer. Map evidence includes the names of different things e.g. places, roads or rivers.
