    Hi,
    SEMrush
    Will give $10 to the first person who either finds some code that will convert a postcode to an address or an API that will let me do this.

    Are you looking for script to work for a particular country or countries of the entire word ?
    there is a free script that does it for the UK .

    Yeah, looking just for the UK.

    I don't want to have to use a database of addresses, just an API or an 3rd party that offers the service.

    Let me know what you have killerj.

    Well , This free script that ive attached to this post fetches the address from a Mysql database. Its not an API , so you need to host the script somewhere and have a database... but it works pretty well for the UK.

    Killerj, Where did you get the postcodes and place names data from?
    I've been looking all over the place for something like this ;)

    Well , The authors website http://www.swansoninternet.com seems to be down ATM .. the place names and their pin codes along with longitude and latitude are stored in a table and the SQL file that you need to create this table is provided within the Zip file.
