Nice listings. Fixed the Birmingham ones close to me.

Subject: [Talk-GB] UK Postcode Analysis

As I've been adding quite a few new addr:postcode tags as part of the quarterly 
project to use the FHRS data, I began wondering what the overall state of 
addr:postcode tags was in the UK. I've started doing a bit of analysis, which 
has began by checking the OSM postcodes against the Code-Point Open dataset.

The first output I've produced is a list of likely errors where addr:postcode 
values either do not have the appropriate formatting or do not match an entry 
in Code-Point Open. There's quite a large number of such errors, although it's 
pretty small as a percentage of the total addr:postcode tags.

If you're interested, have a look at and see if you can help 
by fixing any of them. Some will be errors in source data, but others could 
well be typos and transcription errors.
