Spotted! what3words on Northumbrian water signposts

Northumbrian Water has started adding what3words addresses to its public way-finding signs on their water reservoirs. Kielder Water is the first site, but there are more to follow.

If you've spotted a what3words address on your summer travels, share a photo here and tag your post with 'w3w in the wild'

Cool UK arts project using w3w

This online gallery showcases creative works including poetry, art, video and sound, with each piece inspired by a specific 3m square in the Yorkshire town of Goole. 

Have a look and tell us which is your favourite – I'm personally loving the tiny boat installation at ///since.afraid.blossom

Hi in the UK!

My name is Josh and I work in the partnerships team at what3words.

I have been working on a number of different projects across the UK. I have been assiting Emergency Services utilise what3words to assist those in need, breakdown companies (like the AA) find people broken-down at the roadside, and also councils/local authorities around the UK to use what3words to help the public report things like fly-tipping and pot-holes.

If you have any questions or if you need anything at all please do just give me a shout :)
