It may seem unlikely, but that's the way it works (see better examples in the michaelt post above). Often postcodes cover more than one village, and there are thus duplicate street numbers or names. Some attempt is made to avoid clashes for new addresses, but there are plenty of existing ones. You need more than a postcode and number to identify an address, sometimes a street and/or village is also required.
