it works! well almost...
Thanks, I worked through each tile returned from MasterMap using v.in.ogr I now have a number of separate  vector layers making up my map. No labels or colours - is this right? 
Can I combine tiles to a single layer or is this not advised?
Looking forward to linking with R where I do know what I'm doing!

Sure, GML is a vector format known to OGR, 

so you can import it with the v.in.ogr module.

good luck,
