Postcode District Maps - six maps covering Great Britain, showing the first half of the postcode

Postcode District Map Series
This District map presents the complete first half of the Postcode (or Outward Code) and is one of six pre-defined sheets that covers Britain at a scale of an inch to 5 miles. The District maps include all of the Postcode changes from the most recent Royal Mail Postcode Update. The Area and District boundaries appear prominently in red with County and Unitary Authority boundaries displayed in purple. The map base shows motorways, primary and ‘A’ and ‘B’ roads and features conurbation shapes highlighting major towns and cities. Some District sheets also contain large scale city plans within the sheet’s catchment area.
