Seem to be lots of sites but they all seem to be pay for codes.
Pretty typical of any databases these days.

Do you mean individual branches, or merely the overall company? If the
latter, then they're on Wikipedia at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...United_Kingdom

Have a look at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...United_Kingdom for a
list identifing the bank or
http://www.postcodeanywhere.co.uk/de...validator.aspx if you need to
know the actual branch (demo of paid for software so they limit the number
of times you can use this each day)

Regards
Sunil

I tried it for my banks sort code, and it gave this;

Barclays Bank Plc
Fareham
Leicester
Leicestershire
LE87 2BB

Well, the first two lines are sort of correct in a 'geographically correct'
sort of sense, but I can assure you that fareham is nowhere near leicester,
and that isnt their postal address either,and that the actual branch and
postal address for my bank isnt any of those other than the first line, eg
Barclays!
Other than that, it was quite accurate.

One of these then ?

K:\databasegrep -i fareham sortcode-varcrlf.txt|grep -i barclays
2\Fareham\203089\Leicester, \ Leicestershire, \\LE87
2BB\0845-7555555\\FAREHAM\Barclays Bank Plc\LEICESTER\02219\1\
3\Gosport\203089\Leicester, \ Leicestershire, \\LE87
2BB\0845-7555555\S\FAREHAM\
Barclays Bank Plc\LEICESTER\01190\1\
3\Park Gate\203089\Leicester, \ Leicestershire, \\LE87
2BB\0845-7555555\S\FAREHAM\Barclays Bank Plc\LEICESTER\01190\1\
3\Stubbington\203089\Leicester, \ Leicestershire, \\LE87
2BB\0845-7555555\S\FAREHAM\Barclays Bank Plc\LEICESTER\01190\1\

(sorry for the poor formating)

The web application has clearly just returned the first one of the four
branches which share that sort code, not unreasonable as the other
three are sub branches of Fareham.

Several banks don't list the actual branch addresses anymore in the
sort code directory, just the mail center that deals with BACS related
mail. Similarly almost none list the actual branch phone number.

For Barclays, it gives the 'branch' description first, then the location
of the local service centre where all the actual paper work and
accounting is done. It is this latter address which is needed for
correspondence relating to accounting such as unpaid items,
pre-authorised payments and all account enquiries. Most importantly it
handles the payment of debit items.

So, I reckon the reply was pretty accurate.

So can I.

I tried several sort codes that I know, someof them worked others gave the
correct branch name but a bizarre address.

and that isnt their postal address either,and that the actual branch and
postal address for my bank isnt any of those other than the first line, eg
Barclays!

Hmm I've got a watch that tells the correct time twice a day. Sadly when I
tried the site before I used one of the (rare) sort codes it gets right.

Ahah!

"The Leicester, LE87 2BB address is known within Barclays as "Open Sort and
Distribute". Any post sent to a Barclays branch should end up here where a
team open it and forward it to the relevent department for action. Data
Protection Act requests go to Radbrook Hall, copy statement requests go to
Barclays Service Centre in Glasgow and complaints go to one of the Complex
Query Centres or Head Office, depending on the nature of the complaint. If
your letter is addressed to a named individual, it will be forwarded to
them, but if the letter actually contains a general request (such as a copy
of a statement), it will then be forwarded to the relevent department for
action."

Seems it if omitted the 'fareham' bit it would be a valid address, and that
the key thing is the postcode, which is barclays only.
