Various database errors exist with places in London. In particularly, streets in Marylebone, like Hinde Street W1 are listed as "Marylebone {Wigan}". Other streets in surrounding areas are listed as {City of London) when they're not in that borough, but in Westminster. Winsland Street W2, in Paddington, is just one example.



In fact, the whole 'county' recognition seems utterly random, unreliable and misleading



Heaton (Newcastle upon Tyne) is shown as (Staffordshire Moorlands). I've found others as I've been using Navigator, but these are the ones that come to mind. I've resolved that the "counties" are all useless and have programmed myself to ignore them.





If it makes any difference, I'm using the full Great Britain map.

Liverpool area postcodes all begin with L, the whole area was re-designated postcode CH about 3 years ago

Durham Court CH65 and surrounding roads, Ellesmere Port all missing

Heywood, as a town doesn't exist but its streets can be found under Oldham.

Broughton Towers Way Preston, PR2. 4 years old ,whole estate missing approx 300 houses

Hyde in Thameside doesn't exist.

Newton le Willows in Merseyside doesn't exist but appears to be part of Haydock.

Middleton in Manchester is in the database as Middleton(Rochdale)
