Landranger Coordinates

Not sure if this really deserves a post of its own, but it is mildly exciting to delve back into the Perl of the Coordinate converter

Anyway it can now understand ‘Landranger References’ which are common in some walking books (that’s the main place I seen them anyway!), basically where just the digits of a Grid reference are specified along with a Landranger sheet number.

Example: OS52 894334 which is 894334 on Landranger sheet 52, converted to NN894334 as a standard Grid Reference.
