Where it really scores is in rural Policing: I was talking to the local Rural Officer and he said it was priceless when the incident is in a field or woods. It helps them go to the right place and coordinate with the air ambulance and drone pilots.

The main use is in dealing with idiots on quad bikes in fields, hare coursing and riding accidents.

Our postcode will take people to a farm track about 200 yards away, so it's good to have something that's more precise, and more memorable. If the B&B was still open, we'd certainly use what3words.
