National Grid #CraftographyMap quiz

Our talented Craft Club created the fantastic Great British Craftography Mapand it’s currently up for auction to raise money for Solent Mind, our corporate charity. The crafty individuals recreated the Ordnance Survey National Grid into a 2.2m by 1.2m wall hanging with the 91 tiles showcasing 16 different craft techniques. Each tile represents a notable subject from the area covered – it could be a geographical feature, a well-known landmark, a local food, or even a craft or material associated with the area.

Just for fun, we have a #CraftographyMap quiz to test your knowledge of Britain. We’ve picked ten of the crafty tiles – can you tell us which areas of Britain they represent? Bonus points if you know the corresponding National Grid tile reference too…

1. The contours are mapped out for this lofty British mountain

2. Which bridge does this tile represent?

3. Where might you spot a puffin?

4. Which Scottish village is shown on this tile?

5. A famous viaduct with wizarding connections – can you name it?

6. Which grid square would contain this castle?

7. Castles represent several National Grid tiles – can you name this one?

8. Which tile is dressed for success?

9. The nickname or the real name will be accepted for this zippy tile

10. Ancient landmarks are represented – can you name this one?

Post your answers on the blog and don’t forget to bid in the auction to raise money for Solent Mind. It closes around 7pm on Sunday 9 April.
