HistoryEdit

For 1857–1868 an S sector of the London postal district existed.

Similarly, there were also S-prefixed postal districts in the compass-based system used in Glasgow: Glasgow S1, S2, S3 and S4 areas changed to postcodes G41 to G44.

  • S20 district was S19
  • S21, S25 and S26 were S31
  • S32 to S36 were S30.

S64, Mexborough post town, was earmarked for use as DN13 which has never been used, see DN postcode area.
