Introduction

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 1.74M full postcodes (out code + in code).

Purpose

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

List Status

Outcode Postcodes Current List : 2974

Full UK Postcode Current List : 1741532

Hi, I'm finding a few postcodes which don't seem to exist in the dataset such as L2 7XS? Any idea why they maybe missing? Much appreciate your work on this!

Hi Rich, Our current records show NP7 1AG is an inactive (old) postcode. Also Royal Mail Postcode finder doesn't list it. Do you know if it has been reissued / new?
