B Glover, can you confirm the start and end postcodes that were used please?

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?

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

Hi Arthur, thanks for the comments. This page : Measure Distance on a Map should do what you require.

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.
