UK and Northern Ireland Postcodes

The UK postal system uses postcodes to help with automating the sorting and delivery of mail. This is made up of a 2-part code, an out code and an in code. As the out code is the most significant part of the system, it can be used to obtain a rough area level break up of the UK. There are approximately 2971 out codes and approximately 1812402 full postcodes (out code + in code).


The uses of these out codes and lat/long values include mapping applications such as:

Hi, great site. Am I allowed to use the post code data in my professional work? Are there any limitations on using this data for clients? Thanks

Hi James, no, not at hand. Its a case of taking the large postcode file and applying a filter.

Hi, do you know any way of getting the lap/long of a UK postcode changed? We are in a very rural location and the postcode covers a wide area. However as the postcode centre is at the end of our private track we get everything including HGVs arriving here! If we could change it to the end of our lane where there are signs delivery drivers might then look at the signs. Thanks in advance.

Hi I matched your postcodes to a query I had which contained over 70k rows. Out of them 70k post codes there was only 150 missing. That's pretty amazing. Thanks!

Hi, I've matched your postcodes amongst a huge amount of records and found that this table is missing around 4,000 of the 70,000 records matched. If you would like a dump of the codes email me cro****k Regards, Daniel

Dave, thanks for the feedback. I agree with what you have found. WV98 and EN77 are non-geographic postcodes so they should really have no lat/lng associated with them rather than the current idea of "put them in the bottom left corner". I would rather still have them included in the table to allow validation, but set their lat/lng to null or empty value instead. This is a change that will be getting applied soon. As for MK11, I'm not sure what you mean? Is there a entry just for MK11 that is in the wrong position?

Hi, Great Resource. I'm a bit confused about some of the postcodes though.Certain postcodes seem to have identical lat-lon even though the postcodes are different. For instance anything listed WV98 or EN77(or the single MK11 have a lat lon of 49.76682/-7.557163. EN77 should be Enfield, I think, and WV should be Wolverhampton, but those lat lon seem to be pointing off the coast of cornwall? Are these reserved for later use? The postoffice website doesn't recognise most of those postcodes.
