Today's location: peeron google osm bing/os kml crox

The Bristol graticule is at latitude 51, longitude -2. It includes all of Bristol, Bath and Gloucester, and the majority of Cheltenham, Newport and Weston-super-mare. The graticule is almost exclusively land, with the only water being the Mouth of the Severn. Most of the graticule is English but in the north west corner there is a sizeable chunk of Wales.

This graticule has a facebook group, a daily location feed, a GeoRSS feed and a (broken) Atom feed. There is also a Recent Changes feed courtesy of Yahoo Pipes, which doesn't seem to be working.
