With reference to my earlier comment, I'd like to see some kind of map or ability to find your most local measuring pads function on the website. I live on the border of 4 counties and 3 of those have no measurers anymore so it can be difficult to then search down the list for the other counties to work out where else one can go for subsequent measuring.
Whilst I agree, there is not a physical 'map', the official Measurers are listed by County and with the 'town' location, so unless one's geography is appalling, locating a venue shouldn't be too arduous. After all, we do so when seeking shows to go to - and most of us are able to use Google-map!
Edited to add: SJW87 - I believe I'm correct in guessing that you live in middle England as, by your description, you are landlocked.
Given the M6 and M1 corridors, there are a good selection of Measuring facilities in the entire region and especially up the M6 corridor.
Those who chose to live on the extremities of the UK are less well served - but there again, they are familiar with travelling if they desire to compete at 'big' functions.
So, whilst expecting a facility on your very doorstep, spare a thought for those who, for hypothetical example, reside in Thurso or Truro and who undertake these (albeit delightfully scenic!) journeys routinely to see the bigger world!
I would reiterate on behalf of the JMB, that the Board has no wish to INCREASE the number of measuring facilities and regularly audits those which are annually approved.
