The United Kingdom is a country in northwest Europe. It includes the British Crown Dependencies of the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. There are 73 graticules, some of which are shared with the Republic of Ireland. The Canterbury graticule includes about 100 square metres of a beach in France -- but only at low tide.

History and UK law make geohashing particularly interesting and often quite easy. The country is covered with a network of public footpaths and bridleways guaranteeing public access. Hashpoints are rarely far from a road or one of these paths. Most of the terrain is easy but there are more extreme mountain, moor and marine areas where geohashing is less of a walk in the park.

[edit] Events

All geohashers are cordially invited to the 2016 geohashing day meetup in the Cambridge UK graticule.

  • 21 May 2016 (Sat): An excellent celebration of Geohashing Day will take place at the (as yet unknown) hashpoint at 4pm. Tongs and Sourcerer have so far confirmed. If the weather is likely to be fine, a picnic has been proposed!

[edit] Expeditions

There have been far too many expeditions in the UK to individually list here -- see the graticule pages themselves for lists of expeditions in each area.

[edit] Graticules

This section lists the UK's graticules, along with the date of the first geohash in each. If no date is listed, the graticule can be assumed to be virgin. The list is roughly arranged by region, and graticules are listed from NW to SE in each region. Graticules covering more than one region are listed by the one containing the place the graticule is named after. The Sligo, Ireland, graticule is also listed under Northern Ireland as it contains a small portion of the UK. Active graticules are listed in bold.
