We're using ACT 2008. Is there any addon, or functionality in later versions, which would allow lookups to find, say, all contacts within X miles of a specific (UK) postcode?

I'm not aware of any add-on that does this...
Oneof the issues is that it would need to be quite heavily customised for each country as the post/zip code formats are not standard.
Also, because codes change boundaries from time to time or new codes are added (and not all are location specific), you need to subscribe to different databases for each country.
There are tools that calc distances between p/codes in the UK - http://www.postcode-info.co.uk/distances-between-postcodes.html
This means it could be done... if really important to you, let me know and I'll quote something
