The text search facility carries out a text search of the listing entry title. It does not search parish, county or country names except where these form part of the title. (For a full text search of the entire site, including descriptions and location names, use the Google Site Search, below).
Enter a single word or combination of words to search for all entries containing that word or words. To search for an exact phrase, enclose it in quotes. For example:
searches for all entries containing the word "village"
searches for all entries containing the words "village" and "green"
searches for all entries containing the phrase "village green"
searches for all entries containing the phrase "village green" and the word "pond"
You can search either for an individual postcode, or by postcode area
searches for all entries in the CB7 area
searches for all entries in the CB7 4AJ postcode
Note: Postcodes may not be totally accurate, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, only buildings which receive post are allocated a postcode by Royal Mail, and many listed buildings are uninhabited structures which do not receive mail - you can't send a letter to a maypole or a celtic cross, for example! Also, buildings listed prior to the introduction of postcodes don't have a postode as part of the listing, so, even though they may receive mail and have a postcode allocated to them, there's no official record of their postcode included in the data licenced by this website.
Buildings without a postcode included in the listing database have, therefore, simply been allocated the nearest geographical postcode using the Ordnance Survey CodePoint database. This is good enough for geolocation purposes, such as mapping or satnav, but if you do actually want to write a letter to the occupants of a listed building then you should check the correct address and postcode using the Royal Mail website.
