Gazetteer of over 50,000 places (illustration), details: Place, County, Region, Country, N.Grid & Numeric coords (km/miles), Sector level Postcode, PostTown and Key Location Directional text (total 16 fields). Final 2 fields hold "Old County" if amended due to recent UK changes.

As an alternative to geo-referencing in N.Grid, we can provide Latitude & Longitude as either Degrees Minutes Seconds alphanumeric format or as numeric Decimal Degrees.

This product is a comprehensive Gazetteer of "Places"; for places where several postcode Sectors may apply (e.g. Cities), it details the predominant/closest to the geo-reference of the "place". For those who equally or primarily concerned with "postal geography" we have available our "National Postal Summary" files.
