    Default Postcode correction in Tipton

    The Waggon and Horses at 57 Dudley Road West has the same postcode as The Wagon & Horses at 57 Dudley Road. According to Royal Mail, the former should be B69 2HT, which is an Oldbury postcode rather than Tipton. (This is the Tividale area, which is on the borders of the two post towns.) Please correct the postcode, which I assume will automatically move the pub into Oldbury.

    Cheers

    Hi sheffield hatter,

    We have corrected the address of Waggon and Horses.

    Sadly it doesn't automatically move the pub to Oldbury, we didn't code the system with it in mind that pubs would move towns, this was part of the decision to make postal towns and postcodes central to the system, they rarely change. It also potentially breaks the areas. Not one of the changes I enjoy as if I mistype the fix every pub ends up in the same town (has happened and required a backup restore). Needs must .

    Thanks for letting us know about that.
