Firstly I'm sorry there hasn't been a blog update for a while, I've been busy with university work! Whilst I haven't been able to spend much time on the website since Christmas, I'm pleased to see it has still continued to grow. Indeed we have had lots of great new locations and new users daily! Here are a few of our favourite new locations. 

HappisburghThe Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye and St Audries Bay, Somerset.

I just wanted to post some general ideas about what we hope to achieve in the near future to keep you updated.

Firstly and most importantly, now we have a good spatial coverage of the UK we will need to start introducing location moderation. Whilst we appreciate all submitted locations, a few lack the required detail which goes against the main aim of this website. If our standards don't remain high, this website will become no more useful than photo-sharing websites. ​We want every location you click on to be interesting and useful. We hope you support this idea, please provide feedback below.

Whilst the website has become more functional we still have lots of ideas:

-Event sharing

-Editors’ pick categories. I.e. the top 10 lighthouses, castles, piers etc.

-Development of userpoints

-Downloadable guides

-The ability for users to upload their images to a location

-Competitions.
