… does what it says on the tin

Ever driven past a motorway junction and wondered what its postcode was? Then wonder no longer …

The idea behind this site was to create the most utterly futile collection of pages I could conceive of. Unfortunately, once I’d started, I realised that it could actually become quite useful – in particular for those nifty little in-car satnav gizmos.

M1M2M3M4M5M6M25M42 … others to follow … one day …

  1. hello! Wonder no longer- this IS a useful website! Some of us, like me, get paid for mileage to and from work- and if I need to work out mileage from a motorway junction where the border is, a postcode for it is invaluable! So, although the motorway I actaully needed isn’t on here- (M60 ringroad) nevermind, it’s the thought that counts! bravo! 🙂

  2. Wheres the m2 and m20

  3. Thanks Becca – nice to know someone’s looking at it! I’ve not tackled the M60 yet, as my source data dates from the M62/M63 days, so I’ve got to work out what the new junction numbers are! 🙂

  4. I have been wondering if motorways have postcodes. What about addresses for service stations? Do they have a postcode?

  5. Trying to find a carvery within a mile or so of any motorway junction on our route home. This should be really useful.

  6. Excellent Idea and extremely useful when having to meet colleagues at service stations. Well done and keep up the good work. Many thanks

  7. totally unrelated question if I may. Can anyone tell me if Motorway Service Stations have different postcodes for the same service station,depending on which direction you are travelling.. or does a single postcode cover the entire site. very useful to know if meeting colleagues and are just given the name of the services. Only.not knowing whether they are waiting north or south bound . many thanks for your time

  8. Hi Martin. My understanding is that while most junctions have a single postcode (postcodes being assigned to areas containing buildings, so the postcode for the junction is incidental), service stations could potentially have different postcodes for opposite sides of the road. I’d expect the logic to be the access to the service station and hence the postal route needed to access it directly – but I’m not an expert on this, and this is just supposition.
