There's a square with only an HT line across one corner.

See number 2, here;

There's an interesting spot below Beast Cliff in North Yorkshire, in which
about 10m^2 of land above the high water line represents the entire land
surface of the 'OV' 100km National Grid square.

This means that the OV square is 99.9999999% water.
