You don't need a smartphone or the W3W app to find your home's unique reference, if you are reading this, then you have internet access, Visit the W3W website and follow the instructions. You will need to allow your location to be found by clicking the location finder icon at the bottom right of the W3W webpage.
W3W is also recognised by the emergency services and invaluable if you need help in a rural area. It is used by Ramblers UK and Wiltshire Council's Rights of Way teams.
