    Blackheath Station is partly correct. It is still south of Buxton as the nearest station to many Buxton pubs, but if you select the station from there, it is in the correct place showing the Blackheath pubs.

    London Waterloo East is still incorrect both ways. Still near Gatwick Airport as nearest station and only shows Gatwick pubs when selected.

    KIDSGROVE is another station that has Gone off the Rails.

    It is 8 miles out of place in Abbey Hulton on a new housing estate East of Hanley. The Railway Inn near Kidsgrove station gives Alsager as its nearest station.

    Selecting Kidsgrove station just shows the Abbey Hulton pubs 8 miles away.

    Another station gone way off track!

    MILLS HILL, Chadderton Manchester is 21 miles out of place and giving the same results as MILL HILL, Blackburn.

    Another Station missing!

    WORKINGTON not showing. Even The Cumberland Hotel opposite Workington Station shows "Harrington" (2.85 miles) as the nearest Station.

    Found it!!! Clearly an attempt at levelling up/down or something - now at Bramley in Surrey! Nearest pub
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    On a different, but related, note - pleasing to see that newly-opened Okehampton is listed (or was this there anyway from the special Sunday services?) but perplexing why others like Soham and Horden are not. Does whoever it is we lift it from ever update their database I wonder? Carping apart, it is another useful facility.

    That must have been quite an effort to find Workington station in Surrey. Well done!

    At least it was on "Station Road", Bramley, Surrey.

    A new record of 310 miles out of place, but only 103 hours walk!
