Launching plot-a-route – please let us know what you think

Posted 25 October 2010 15:15 by martin

We hope you've noticed the new orange 'Plot' tab on the search form:


It's been a popular request for some time now, and we're delighted to add it to the growing list of features on

In brief, it lets you plot your own walk on top of our maps, maybe:
  • A 'themed' walk – e.g. a local nature, architecture, or history walk
  • A running or jogging route – we can help you measure the exact distance
  • The route of a charity walk you are taking part in or organising (you can also list it as an event)
  • A specific A-to-B route that  follows a defined set of streets and paths
More detail here.

Please give it a go – we'd really like to hear from you (on if you think there are any tweaks/improvements we need to make.

    Love plot but it doesnt seem to like off roading, IE next to the river wandle, direct route is the same . try sw19 to sm5 I know a route that gets you there crossing only three roads, through a nat trust park, and wetlands, all next to the wandle, bird watchers hevean. The direct route stays on the roads, Keep it up.

    regards barry

    Ps give us a job as a route planner, wimbledon to kingscross by cycle 70% off the roads 45mins-1hour.
