Steve Elibank made this Freedom of Information request to Ordnance Survey

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Steve Elibank

Dear Ordnance Survey,

Please provide me with a list, in .txt format, of every street name which you have recorded as being in the United Kingdom. Where a name is used more than once, include it the relevant number of times.

Since I am not asking for any location data, this should not cause any commercial difficulties for you.

The material I am requesting is not included in your OpenData, since your gazzette datasets exclude some streets for some reason.

If you require any clarification, please contact me as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,
Steve Elibank
