Moan: Royal Mail and the Post Office

I’ve just tried to send an item by Royal Mail’s “Special Delivery 1pm” service only for the Post Office to say “We can’t accept that – that address doesn’t exist on that postcode and we can’t accept wrong addresses”. However, checking Royal Mail’s own “Postcode Finder” service on their website, checking PostcodeAnywhere’s service, checking and even checking Google’s StreetView service all show that that address exists at the postcode(!)

I have been wondering why so much post goes missing, but the fact that the Post Office denies addresses actually existing when their own website (amongst others) admit they exist may contribute to it…
