    I'm loving this new functionality! Thanks Dave!

    Any plans for rolling this out any further (tube would be most useful...)

    A new way to choose future PuG Crawls could be to aim for a Winfield of green "thumbs ups" within, say. !.5 miles of a main or central station.

    I have spent another exciting lock-down day testing this out on old and suggested crawls.

    Old Crawls
    Manchester 40, Sheffield 32, Shrewsbury 21, Stockport 17

    Planned Crawls
    Birmingham 30, Preston 12, Winchester 10

    Some past suggestions
    Chester 25, Llocinn 21, Bath 16, Cardiff 12, Stafford 12, Stourbridge 12, Coventry 6 (plus 4hr 11min walk to first solid green!).

    One suggestion in code to prevent early selection. You may need Alan Turing for this one.

    I was criticised for moving it to the north when it's actually in the midlands, but you've moved it to Wales?

    A really useful piece of work. Agree keeping just the green thumbs is a good idea too.

    One add-on suggestion: is it easy to have a pin marking the station location? It can be easy to lose your place when scanning round the area in busy locations, and it identifies where the map people think the station entrance is, which is not always right. (I see Blackheath is still up country somewhere!!)
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Good idea, I'll get that in there at some stage.

    Ooops, I'll put that in the right place next time I refresh the data - if anyone knows of others in totally the wrong place I'll get them moved.

    I am thinking of moving Norwch and Llowyrstfft into Wales next, but not Helston because it only has one green "thumbs up" (the Blue...something??)

    Could you alter the walking diversion which adds 4 or 5 minutes to every walk from Chester station. It says it takes 4 minutes to walk to the station bar you are stood outside and 5 minutes to the pub across the road which only takes 12 seconds! If you were short of time it would put you off visiting a pub by adding 10 minutes to the return journey.

    Another lost station! LONDON WATERLOO EAST. It has ended up 3 miles south of Gatwick Airport!

    Blimey! I know that the coronavirus has changed things beyond imagination, but I'm really starting to worry now...
