Nearness (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

proximity

'nearness' is the definition.
(I know that proximity is a type of nearness)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for proximity that I've seen before include "Closeness" , "Neighbourhood" , "Nearness" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times, The Telegraph, The Washington Post and the Thinks.com.
