A post town is a required part of all postal addresses in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and a basic unit of the postal delivery system.[1] Including the correct post town in the address increases the chance of a letter or parcel being delivered on time. Post towns in general originated as the location of delivery offices. As of 2004, their main function is to distinguish between localities or street names in addresses not including a postcode.[2]
