How to Use this Site

DO_SBYT04If you do not already have Google Earth downloaded to your computer, you can do this through the menu option Download Google Earth under the Resources main menu option.

Once you have done this, you need to download the map files you want to view. For example, you might like to see the milestones in your region, or the national fingerposts. Because there are so many types of waymarker, we have split them into separate layers. So next, use the Google Earth Maps main menu option to select the layer you wish to download. The map file for that layer will then open for viewing in Google Earth. You can download and view as many layers as you wish.

All map files are updated quarterly. If you downloaded some Google Earth map files some time ago, you should download the latest version because maps files on your computer do not update automatically.

If you have a more recent photograph of a milestone or waymarker, please share it with us! There is a main menu option  Submit a Photograph. The photograph should be less than 400 KBytes in size: if it’s straight from your digital camera, please reduce it via the Reduce Photo Size tab under the main menu option Resources.

If you have discovered a new milestone or other waymarker or some of our information is incorrect, please tell us about it via the Submit a Change main menu option.

If you are using a SatNav to record the location, the co-ordinates may be given in longitude and latitude, whereas the databases record location in standard Grid References. The menu option Convert Coordinates under the main menu option Resources has a link to a website that provides conversion to OS Grid References.

If you would like to download the information as a spreadsheet instead of viewing it in a map, there is the main menu option Spreadsheets

If you have any technical queries, such as why you are seeing duplicate entries for the milestone pins, look in the tab Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
