I thought that if you had none, it would offer you choices on county and lower basis so you probably did choose for yourself, first time.

Of course, I could be confusing MN method with Freecycle !

But odd that I 'might' have chosen "Flintshire" given I don't live there.

Still better than all those daft sites which mention "Clwyd" as that was broken up 5+ years ago, but still common on websites in any online form showing address - enter postcode and it fills in the county wrongly... That's probably because website has old Royal Mail data.

My postcode seems to show up on maps (on SatNav too) in another place about 2 miles away, but that's definitely a Royal Mail blunder.

Within your Mumsnet Private Profile there is a box for the first part of your postcode.
