Colin, please have a look at How Far Can I Travel. It does something very close to this on a worldwide basis.

Thanks for such a useful tool. To take it to another level, how about the option of plotting a line of constant distance traveled along roads, so it would be an irregular shape rather than a circle. It's a tall order, I know...

Hi, you can switch to full screen and take a screenshot.

I would like to use this map for my website. How can I transfer it? What is the cost?

This tool is wonderful. Using it to help people visualise how easily short distances could be cycled
I would find it eve more useful if the Google bicycling layer could be overlaid.

Very useful for users of electric cars. Point to remember is radius is as the crow flies not actual milage by road.

Can I highlight 10kms along the entire length of a UK county border?
By Steven on 17/02/2016
Hi Paul, unfortunately this is not possible.

Is there a way to restrict the population values returned to one country. For example, if I am searching for a population within 100 miles of a UK postcode I only want to see UK population
By Paul on 22/01/2016
Hi Susan, sorry this is not possible.
By Free Map Tools on 22/01/2016
Is it possible to transfer this to my website?
Would be helpful if the Postcode areas (ie. BH23, BH6 etc.) areas within the radius were names
Hannah, this has now been added.
