I don't know of a website, but couldn't you just use a ruler and compare it to the scale on the site? I know google maps provides a scale, so you would just need to compare the distance to that...

There should be a Maps Labs link in the bottom left of the screen.

Click on it and enable 'Distance Measurement Tool'.

The ruler should be on the bottom left of the map area.
