Encyclopedia > London postal district

The London postal districts are divisions of the London post town in England and are primarily used for the direction of mail. They predate the introduction of postcodes throughout the United Kingdom in the 1960s and have been adapted over time. They cover an area of 241 square miles[1] and collectively form the London Postal Area. This article is about the capital of England and the United Kingdom. ...

History

Origins

The first system of ten districts identified by letters was devised by Sir Rowland Hill and introduced in 1857 and 1858. [2] The numbered subdivisions were a war-time measure and date from 1917. The 1917 subdivisions remain important, because they form the first part of the two-part modern postcode (so N1 1AA is an address in the old N1 district), and because they continue to be used by Londoners to refer to their districts. Rowland Hill Sir Rowland Hill KCB FRS (December 3, 1795 - August 27, 1879) was a British teacher and pamphleteer who popularized the concept of penny postage, and was subsequently a government postal official. ...


The London postal districts are organized by sectors, as follows, and then numbered alphabetically within their sectors.

  • In central London, WC and EC (West Central and East Central).
  • In the rest of London, N, NW, SW, SE, W and E.
  • In parts of outer London the districts are subdivisions of 63 other post towns and were introduced at the same time as the other UK postcodes.

A post town is a required part of all UK postal addresses. ... UK and Australian postal codes are known as postcodes. ...

District sequence

The numbering system appears arbitrary on the map. This is because, within each sector, they were numbered by first assigning the number 1 to the closest district to the centre, and then the rest of the numbers were assigned alphabetically by the name of the location of the postal delivery office. So whilst W2 Bayswater is close to central London, N2 * Barnet is a long way out. There are a number of other exceptions to this rule: those postal districts SE19-SE27 follow a similar rule around Crystal Palace with SE19 itself being the area central to Crystal Palace; and the new town of Thamesmead is assigned SE28, created after the current postal district system. Due to its high density, it was deemed that Thamesmead should be assigned a new postcode rather than staying a part of the lower-density SE2 district. [1] Bayswater is an area of London in the City of Westminster. ... High Barnet or Chipping Barnet is a place in the London Borough of Barnet. ... Crystal Palace is an area in south London, England within the postcode London SE19, named after the Crystal Palace, relocated to Upper Norwood in 1854. ... A new town, planned community or planned city is a city, town, or community that was designed from scratch, and grew up more or less following the plan. ... Thamesmead is a new town, more realistically a new suburb, in London built on the southern bank of the River Thames, 9. ...

  • N2 = East Finchley.

The London postal districts were created solely to help sort and deliver mail and therefore rarely coincide with the boundaries of London boroughs (and were created before even the older, smaller metropolitan boroughs). The administrative area of Greater London contains thirty-two London boroughs. ... A metropolitan borough (or metropolitan district) is a type of local government district in England, covering urban areas within metropolitan counties. ...


Relationship to London boundary

The initial system was designed to extend to roughly a 12 miles radius from the centre of London, and consequently the postal districts covered an area much larger than the County of London boundaries of 1889. 44 of the 119 districts were outside the London boundaries such that places such as Leyton in Essex, Ealing in Middlesex, Totteridge in Hertfordshire, West Heath in Kent and Barnes in Surrey were covered by the London postal area. The County of London (in red), super imposed upon todays Greater London area, to show the difference in size with post-1965 Borough boundaries The County of London was an administrative county of England from 1888 to 1965. ... Leyton is a town in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. ... Ealing is a town in the London Borough of Ealing. ... Totteridge is a place in the London Borough of Barnet. ... West Heath is a district in the London Borough of Bexley. ... Barnes is a suburb in south-west London in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. ...


In 1965 the creation of Greater London caused London's boundary to expand to include these places officially as well as postally, however the new boundary went far beyond these postal districts to include places that were not in the London postal area. Royal Mail did not follow this change and expand the postcode area to match. It now has a policy of only changing postcodes if there is an operational advantage to them and has no plan to change the postcode system to match up with London's boundaries. Greater London is the top level administrative subdivision covering London, England. ... Royal Mails logo Royal Mail is the national postal service of the United Kingdom. ...

The City of Westminster is a London borough with city status, situated to the west of the City of London and north of the River Thames. ...


Significance

It is common to use postal districts as placenames in London, particularly in the property market: a property may be described as being "in N11", especially where a postal district is synonymous with a desirable location but also covers other less prestigious places. They are a convenient shorthand for social status, such that a 'desirable' postcode may add significantly to the value of property, and property developers have pressed for the boundaries of postal districts to be altered so that new developments will sound as though they are in a richer area. Some groups on the fringes of the London postal districts lobby to be excluded or included in an attempt to decrease their insurance premiums (see SE2) or raise the prestige of their business (see IG1). This is generally futile as the Royal Mail only changes postcodes in order to facilitate the delivery of post. SE2 is the postcode for Abbey Wood in the London Borough of Greenwich. ... The IG postcode area is a group of 11 postal districts in north east Greater London which are subdivisions of six post towns. ...


NE and S

There are no London postal districts labelled "NE" or "S". These were in the initial division but were later removed as they were considered unnecessary.


Following a report by Anthony Trollope in 1866 most of the NE district was transferred to the E sector; the rest was left without a letter designation until the introduction of the IG and RM postcodes almost a century later (though only a part of the area covered by these new codes was in the old NE London district). The S sector was divided between SE and SW in 1868. Anthony Trollope (April 24, 1815 – December 6, 1882) became one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. ...


The NE and S codes have since been applied to Newcastle Upon Tyne and Sheffield respectively. This article is about a city in the United Kingdom. ... For other uses, see Sheffield (disambiguation). ...

The Post Office Railway, also known as Mail Rail, was a narrow gauge driverless private underground railway in London built by the Post Office to move mail between sorting offices. ...

The British Broadcasting Corporation, usually known as the BBC (and also informally known as the Beeb or Auntie) is one of the largest broadcasting corporations in the world in terms of audience numbers, employing 26,000 staff in the UK alone and with a budget of more than £4 billion. ...

Presentation

All London postal districts were traditionally prefixed with the post town 'LONDON' and periods were commonly placed after each figure. A post town is a required part of all UK postal addresses. ...

e.g. LONDON S.W.1.

Use of the periods ended with the implementation of the national postcode system. More recently, the Royal Mail have specified that the post town and district should each appear on a separate line in order to increase the effectiveness of their OCR equipment. Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is a type of computer software designed to translate images of handwritten or typewritten text (usually captured by a scanner) into machine-editable text, or to translate pictures of characters into a standard encoding scheme representing them (e. ...
