    See my post for Girvan where the district is said to be Gateshead

    Similarly with others
    eg Seahouses and
    OU Ayr South Pier (Ayrshire)

    Latitude = 55.468105
    Longitude = -4.641399

    Route = South Harbour Street
    District = Sedgemoor
    Locality = Ayr
    Post Town = Ayr

    The data comes directly from Googles Geocache system, I have reported the incorrect ones that I have seen.

    To keep this in perspective this incorrect data is odd but it has no effect on the usability of the POIs ...
