This graticule covers the parts of the United Kingdom from 51° to 52° latitude, and from -1° to -2° longitude. It is centred on the M4 corridor, contains the city of Oxford and the towns of Swindon and Basingstoke. It extends as far as Winchester and Salisbury in the south, Cirencester to the west, Chipping Norton to the north, and the outskirts of Reading (although not Reading town centre) to the east. An inland graticule, it's only 0.68% covered with water (source), which makes water hashes unlikely.
