Is there a similar national database for nurseries, or would that be
controlled by individual local authorities?

I've been adding this tag but will probably only retrieve the roughest
of data. I've often gone off on a tangent amending/adding adjacent
objects, realigning roads etc.

I've already been using this data in P2 as part of it's 'Tasks' feature.
No laborious panning around!
Do any other the other editors have a similar feature?
I found it easier if I separate Robert's files into 3 for each
FeatureCollection: Matched, Unmatched & Missing. I also wanted to do
start with my local county rather than by postcode so I've used Overpass
