Ouch! Those files cost a bit of money don't they?
No, they've open sourced them! https://www.ordnance...d/products.html Scroll down a bit for 'Code-Point Open'. The Post Office PAF file cost (and probably still does) Brewster's, but these are freebies (albeit a hefty download).

There are some exciting things you can do when calculating a radius from a given postcode for finding things nearby (as the crow flies) etc, so this is very good news indeed and ideal for an upcoming project.
That's the other thing I love about these forums - you find out cool new stuff every day because the community likes to share

Interesting to hear how far people have pushed the system. The most I have tried so far is 1,800 pages. I have an upcoming project that will need ~ 100,000 pages, so wondering if PW would be suitable. It's not really a public facing website, more a tool that will be used by a few people for analysing and aggregating data, like your nearby intranet tool.
