Unfortunately !!! Unfortunately !!! Unfortunately !!! Unfortunately !!!

 
Unfortunately, the best method I know is just to look up everywhere that you could divide your ticket; you can start by looking at a similar journey, and seeing where it stops, then if relevant look at alternative places to change along the way - I've saved money before on a Newcastle-London train by changing at Sheffield, which isn't on the direct route.
And then you just have to enter every combination into a ticket site to find out which is the cheapest (or at least, the cheapest which doesn't involve more time than you're willing to put up with - ultimately, there's always going to be a balance between cost and convenience). Oh, and individual companies sometimes have the best price on their own site (East Coast do this a lot). Takes bloody ages, but you can save a whole lot of money.
