Not at all. My postcode is EN for Enfield, but my post town is 
Hoddesdon, that being where the delivery office is for my part of the EN 

I believe that EN11 8/9/0 all have Hoddesdon as post town - not sure if 
it goes wider than that.

Likewise my parents have a TA postcode for Taunton, but their post town 
is Crewkerne.
