London Postcodes: E (Eastern)
The current E postcode area was originally formed in 1866 as a merger of the E and NE areas. In 1917, the postal districts were numbered alphabetically by their location; the districts usually cover a wider area than their names might suggest. As of 2004, the district names do not form part of the postal address.
