Thanks for the clarification Roger. The reason I mentioned Parish
was that that is what displays in this tool, and I presume that
comes from:
"SourceLocalityType:    Parish"
In this (example) list:
AdministrativeAreaRef:  080
LocalityName:           Little Oakley
NptgDistrictRef:        203
NptgLocalityCode:       E0046366
QualifierName:          Harwich
SourceLocalityType:     Parish
