Thanks for that. It's a really useful resource to check against. However...

No gazette/database is ever fully accurate. Everything contains errors. 
So I'm somewhat surprised when I see an area listed as 100%. It implies 
users have blindly transferred across without checking in the real 
world. For example in my area there's a street supposedly called 'roman 
road' I'm born & bred & never heard it called that. There's no roads or 
building signs, the local authority, emergency services, or newspaper 
ever describe it that way. A couple of others are where named rows of 
buildings are assumed to be the street name, but are signed differently 
on the ground.
