Placename Search

Select the first five or so letters of the nearest location e.g. bradfo for Bradford - you will have to be specific, currently we do not have location information for regions such as "Yorkshire". You can also use a full postcode, e.g. bd9 4ds or a postcode prefix such as bd9 (but not just bd), or even a grid reference. Placenames starting with St./St/Saint are problematic, you may have to try each variant.
Prefix your choice with " to force an exact match, e.g. "leeds
Short names (5 letters or less) will also be matched exactly.

Add your favourite places free of charge!
You can add all kinds of things under the 'miscellaneous' category: your favourite shops, your own home or offices - anything with a postcode or a National Grid Reference, and you can link to the place from your own website.
