Manchester postcodes are idiosyncratic and often bear little resemblance
to boundaries or townships. Bury, for example, has a Bolton postcode
(BL); Altrincham (actaully in Trafford) has a WA (that is Warrington)
postcode, which is not in Greater Manchester at all. Similarly,
much of Tameside has an OL (Oldham) or an SK (Stockport) postcode,
as does Poynton, which is also not in Greater Manchester, but
lies in the County of Cheshire. Parts of SK14, for example, actually
represent areas of Derbyshire – and there are many others. Postcodes
are intended for the administrative and convenient purposes of
mail delivery and for no other reason – they mark no real or otherwise
NOTE – POSTCODE UPDATES
Royal Mail frequently and regularly changes Postcodes, but the
list shown below is believed to be correct as of January 2006,
but may be subject to change at any time in the future.
