Post Town
A POST TOWN is a required part of all postal addresses in the United Kingdom , and a basic unit of the postal delivery system. 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. Currently their main function is to distinguish between locality or street names in addresses not including a postcode.

Counties Of The United Kingdom
The COUNTIES OF THE UNITED KINGDOM are subnational divisions of the United Kingdom , used for the purposes of administrative, geographical and political demarcation. By the Middle Ages counties had become established as a unit of local government, at least in England By the early 17th century, all of England, Wales , Scotland , and Ireland had been separated into counties. The older term _shire _ was historically equivalent to "county". In Scotland _shire_ was the only term used until after the Act of Union 1707 . Since the early 19th century, counties have been adapted to meet new administrative and political requirements, and the word _county_ (often with a qualifier) has been used in different senses for different purposes. In some areas of England and Wales, counties still perform the functions of modern local government

Ecclesiastical Parish
A PARISH is a church territorial unit constituting a division within a diocese . A parish is under the pastoral care and clerical jurisdiction of a parish priest , who might be assisted by one or more curates , and who operates from a parish church . Historically, a parish often covered the same geographical area as a manor (its association with the parish church remaining paramount). By extension the term _parish_ refers not only to the territorial unit but to the people of its community or congregation as well as to church property within it. In England this church property was technically in ownership of the parish priest _ex-officio_, vested in him on his institution to that parish

Postal County
The POSTAL COUNTIES of the United Kingdom, now known officially as the FORMER POSTAL COUNTIES, were postal subdivisions in routine use by Royal Mail
Royal Mail
until 1996. The raison d\'être of the postal county – as opposed to any other kind of county – was to aid the sorting of mail by enabling differentiation between like-sounding post towns. Since 1996 this has been done by using the outward code (first half) of the postcode instead. For operational reasons the former postal counties, although broadly based on the counties of the United Kingdom, did not match up to their boundaries, in some cases with significant differences. The boundaries changed over time as post towns were created or amended. According to the Royal Mail, the former postal county data no longer forms part of postal addresses. It was removed from the Postcode Address File
File
database in 2000 and does not form part of its code of practice for changing addresses
