Would be even better if we could input house number as well if wanted for an even more accurate walking distance

Hi David, for cost and performance reasons, we have no plans to implement a batch feature such as this.

This is a great tool! What would make it even more special is the ability to perform batch processing of, say, 200 pairs of postcodes! Do you intend on adding this feature and if so, when do you expect it to be available? Thanks!

B Glover, can you confirm the start and end postcodes that were used please?
By Free Map Tools on 12th June 2017

The site would only show distance 'as the crow flies' and not walking distance. As I'm not a crow, it wasn't very helpful.

When inputting the journey Wd3 1LJ to WD18 0HB, the tool ignores the shortest route and uses a roundabout one that is nearly twice as long. ??

Hi Lisa, which postcodes are you using?
By Free Map Tools on 8th April 2017

Have entered 2 post codes but isn't giving the correct locations for either one.

Brilliant for working out the distance from B&B/motel to events. Thankyou

Hi, can you explain how it doesn't work please? What do you input, what do you expect and what happens?
By Free Map Tools on 22nd June 2016

It doesn't work

Great site

Hi Arthur, thanks for the comments. This page : Measure Distance on a Map should do what you require.
By Free Map Tools on 31st May 2016

Can you allow for a draggable line or redefinable route (not using postcodes as they don't apply to coastal marshland, I think)? I wanted the distance along the North Norfolk Coastal Path from Morston Quay to Blakeney, not the shortest distance, along the busy road! Great site, though.

Average Walking times would also be helpful. but this is a very good site.

the map gives the wrong postcode for my street in Hull
By chris on 26th November 2015

Great stuff. Trying to buy a house that's within walking distance to the city.
