Hi everyone,

Does anyone know whereabouts I could find a file that shows every single village/town in England? Specifically for Northamptonshire if that's easier.

Thanks,

David.

See:

http://earth-info.ng...ntry_files.html

There is a tab-delimited text file with lat/lon coordinates for the UK here. This can be made into a shape file and projected to OSGB36 easily enough, but there are problems with some of the data.

There is also other source from Geonames.org. Have a look at http://download.geon...ort/dump/GB.zip

One other. Go here:

http://download.geof.../great_britain/

and download 'england.shp.zip'. In this archive there is a file called 'places.shp'. The data in this file is an order of magnitude better than that in the files mention above.
