UK postcodes consist of two alphanumeric groups, separated by a space; for example “SO15 2GB”.
The first group is called the outward code: it describes a small town, a district of a large town, or a rural area, such that the outward code is sufficient (with a few exceptions) to determine the sorting office that will deliver the mail.
The second group is called the inward code: it represents a small group of addresses - from 70 houses down to a single business - that would always form part of the same delivery round.
Typically the inward code covers one side of a short street, or a natural section of a longer one.
