     131<h3>Here's another source of free postcodes</h3>

     133<p>There are many unattributed postcodes sets on the web, but none others
     134(apart from freethepostcode.org, which we are already working with) which
     135are unambiguously free. In particular there is a <a href="http://www.jibble.org/ukpostcodes/">site</a> which lots of people have pointed at. Unfortunately
     136there is no actual data there; the data was removed after the Post Office
     137issued a take-down notice to this site. We're only interested in public
     138domain database (or possibly databases with other unambiguously "free"
     139licensing terms)
