A Grid Square somewhere near Bristol

I am one of the OS 1:25000 map fan club, surely the the best series of maps in the world; gems of cartography. This series of posts will take one of those maps, then take just one grid square, and then explore.
Like all of the OS explorer series, this is a facilitating map to lay out and explore with the finger, eyes and imagination.The symbology is perfect for bringing for capturing a landscape in all its dimensions, including time.
To buy a copy, on Amazon just click on the link at the bottom of this blog. Alternatively try the OS brilliant App. I use it on the Kindle Fire, and it is excellent value, and fun.
This is a map square that appears almost devoid of interest, and totally devoid of names. I have three years of transiting through this cartographic semi- desert that appears to offer little to distract from a daily diet of headphone piped podcasts.
And yet, there is a glimmer of potential within this entrapment, a chance to create something new. Pyschogeography, my little Kindle Fire HD6, and this blog may be a combination that provide an escape from the pointlessness of the day commute.
And so this blog changes direction for a while. where it will go I am not sure, it will be an exploration of a small square of British Surburbia, and an exploration of a new subject.
