I would like to generate a unique list of street names from a list of UK addresses, but obviously there will be a number of streets with the same name. I want to distinguish between streets that are genuinely different.
On AtoZ, the street names on the index is written as:
Bell street, RH1 High Street, RH1
and so on. I have yet to come across a street name with more than one outcode. So based on this,
34, Bell street, RH1 6HH and 36, Bell street, RH1 6HJ
would refer to the same street, but say you had
34, Bell street, RH1 6HH and 36, Bell street, RH2 6HJ
can I be certain that these are two different streets?
