Small world models are networks consisting of many local links and fewer long range `shortcuts', used to model networks with a high degree of local clustering but relatively small diameter. Here, we concern ourselves with the distribution of typical inter-point network distances. We establish approximations to the distribution of the graph distance in a discrete ring network with extra random links, and compare the results to those for simpler models, in which the extra links have zero length and the ring is continuous.
