Not even close I'm afraid. UK postcodes always start with one (London
only I believe) or (usually) two letters, generally derived from the
town where the major distribution centre for the district is located.
This is followed by one or two digits which represents a subdivision of
that area. After the space, the second group is always one digit
followed by two letters, these do not use the full range of available
characters but I can't find my validator to list what the valid bits
ObRelevantBit: Running 3 machines over the break, late crimble day or
early boxing day the machine with the shared filing system crashes so
none of them got to return blocks... :-(
