Meeting of the Myriads
Meeting of the Myriads
OV 0000 is a unique square being the sole land representative of the OV myriad. It only just qualifies with around 10 square metres of boulders above the high tide mark. The low tide level is a good 50 metres away and well displayed in this photo. Taking an average of GPS fixes I placed a buoy on the approximate location of OV 000000 which marks the intersection of the four myriads OV, TA, SE and NZ. Each of these has a different first letter because each belongs to a different 500 kilometre square. OV 000000 is the only point in the UK where four such giant myriads intersect.
