With Marple being on the edge of the Peak District and likely to have people wandering out into the hills, I thought this was worth publicising.  What3Words is a location finding App for your Smartphone or Tablet.

It says it can pinpoint you to within 3 metres, so in an emergency the police etc can find precisely where you are, so even if you have no mobile signal provided you can send someone with the 3 Words to where there is a signal the police etc can go straight to the emergency point.

It can be used for many other purposes such as where a Post Code is just not sufficient or not known.

As all school children seem to have a smart phone nowadays it would be a useful exercise to see if they could use the App.

If you decide to try it, try going here  You will need Google Maps or similar also on your phone or Tablet and then it will navigate you to the point.
