    Default UK postcode : Address look up

    I am looking for an address finder for a shopping cart, you know the type 'enter postcode' then 'address lookup' which give you a list of houses on that postcode.

    Are there any free db's or the like?

    TIA

    I don't know of any RELIABLE UK postcode finder scripts apart from the paid ones
    allies-computing.co.uk I have heard are quite good. They offer a free trial so maybe worth trying it out for a while

    Did you get any further with this? I would be interested to find out if you managed to get a full list of postcodes and addresses! thx

    Delboy, those lists are great but can only be used to find to town/district you live in, not specific street etc. Handy to have tho

    thx for those. I have uploaded them to a database...just now need to try and find a reverse geocoder to change lat/long to street address. Found US ones but no UK...think maybe my first thoughts were right, Royal Mail seem to be the only ones with this info, but i haven't finished searching yet!
