Visit [1] and try DE4 4HA - addresses include "1 Council Square Brassington, MATLOCK, DE4 4HA", "1 Pleasant Cottage Miners Hill, Brassington, MATLOCK, DE4 4HA" and "1 Windyridge Red Lion Hill, Brassington, MATLOCK, DE4 4HA"

Try HD7 4PD to get "1 Moles Head, Golcar, HUDDERSFIELD, HD7 4PD" and "1 Prospect Place, Golcar, HUDDERSFIELD, HD7 4PD"

Try HD4 6XA and see "1 Broad Lane, Thurstonland, HUDDERSFIELD, HD4 6XA", "1 Blake House Thurstonland, HUDDERSFIELD, HD4 6XA", "1 Clough Cottages Thurstonland, HUDDERSFIELD, HD4 6XA", "1-2 Clough Cottages Greenside Road, Thurstonland, HUDDERSFIELD, HD4 6XA"

And of course there's the other direction: EC1N 8QX covers a bunch of flats in the same building, so one postcode includes "Flat G.7, Ziggurat Building, 60-66 Saffron Hill, LONDON, EC1N 8QX" and "Flat 1.1, Ziggurat Building, 60-66 Saffron Hill, LONDON, EC1N 8QX" - in other words, multiple properties have the same number within the street, and the same latitude and longitude. Also the building "number" has a hyphen, the flat "number" has a dot and can have a letter, and the building has a name too.
