Attempts needed to find a list of nearby places on the National Trust site: 5

  1. Enter postcode on the home page, press Enter, and the postcode disappears.
  2. Enter postcode on the home page, press Enter, and the postcode disappears.
  3. Enter postcode on the home page, try clicking on the search button instead of pressing Enter... and get taken to an advanced search page with no results. And with no postcode.
  4. Enter postcode on the advanced search page, press Enter... and get taken to a page that initially appears blank, but after several seconds updates to list all National Trust properties, not just the nearby ones. And the postcode disappears again.
  5. Enter postcode yet again, try clicking on the search button instead of pressing Enter... and after a couple of seconds of apparent inactivity the list updates to show what I actually wanted.

Attempts needed to find a list of nearby places on the English Heritage site: 4

  1. Enter postcode in on the home page, press Enter... and get taken to a regional page.
  2. Enter postcode in the "Near your town" section of that page, press Enter... and get taken to a combined places to visit/events page.
  3. Scroll down, click "Find more properties"... and get taken to an advanced search page that (surprise, surprise) initially shows no results, but after several seconds updates to list all English Heritage places. And the postcode disappears.
  4. Enter postcode, press Enter... and after a couple of seconds of apparent inactivity the list updates to show what I actually wanted.
