UK online maps and grid references

A blog posting from the University of East Anglia (Landscape History) provides links to:

Norfolk Historic Map Explorer which allows you to view and compare Tithe Award maps, Enclosure maps, the Six Inch OS map and aerial photographs from 1946 and 1988 for Norfolk.

Flash Earth "a quick and uncluttered site that’s great for viewing aerial photography of anywhere in the world."

Grab a Grid Reference provides an easy way of working out grid references in multiple formats. Note the daily limit of how many OS tiles you can use

Fielden Maps Coordinate Converter for those times when you need to convert between from lat/long to OS grid references and more obscure geographic reference systems.
