[Talk-GB] Datastore musical allotments

I'd also like to ask about the two postcode fields.  What do 'supplied
postcode' and 'nearest postcode' mean?  Perhaps the first one is for the
allotment itself and the second is for a nearby street?

If so, some entries in the data are clearly bogus:

# Name: Hendon Grove
# Borough Ref: 27
# Location: St. Joseph's Grove, NW4
# Supplied Postcode:
# Nearest Postcode: NW11 6AS

(OK, it's not absolutely certain that a different outbound code indicates an
error - the allotment might be just on the border between two postcode areas -
but it's a pretty good bet.)

Could these obviously incorrect entries be stripped out before doing the rec?
