Tom, you are right, so what is the TA or EN in your examples called by RM?

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 district.

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.
