[Talk-GB] Another UPRN/ oddity

Here's a good one...

I know the street at:

   https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=52.54633&mlon=-1.91892#map=19/52.54633/-1.91892

which is a side-loop off the Queslett Road dual carriageway (and,
indeed is the original alignment of Queslett Road, before the dual
carriageway was built), as being also "Queslett Road". OSM sensibly
agrees with me, as does Royal Mail's address/postcode-finder. As did a
friend who lived there, many years ago.

OSM has it as most (but not the western extremity) of this way:

   https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/21585974

all of this one: (under the M6 motorway)

   https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/400244529

and the southern segment only, of this one:

   https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/400244530#map=18/52.54747/-1.91762:

The house nearest to my marker is 229 Queslett Road. Its UPRN is
100070487637; and the government flood warning service also says its
address is Queslett Road:

   https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/long-term-flood-risk/risk?address=100070487637

But the USRN for the loop is given on "Find My Street" as 2708337,
which is Booths Lane.

I can't link to that, because...  well, I don't know why. You can look
it u by zooming and scrolling to it via:

   https://www.findmystreet.co.uk/

Google Maps also calls it Booths Lane.

OSM says Booths Lane only starts with:

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/400244530#map=18/52.54747/-1.91762

and my local knowledge concurs.

AFAICT, there are no street name plates on that stretch of road.
