There is an extended version of the postcode, which includes an extra 
two (I think) characters, that qualify it to an individual delivery 
point.  I think you have to subscribe to the Walksort service, or 
similar, to be able to see the list of those, but anyone who receives 
official mail with a pre-printed bar code, could, in principle, find 
their full code.
