    Often, many of the people who live in this sort of postcode will be well-off managers living in detached houses. These are known as type 11 in the ACORN classification and 3.7% of the UK’s population live in this type.

    Neighbourhoods fitting this profile are most often found in East Anglia, North Yorkshire and Leicestershire.


    These well-off people live in established towns and villages.

    People tend to be a little older, with households being a mix of couples with older children, empty nesters with some retired people. They live in large detached houses and many people have paid off their mortgage. As a result, their high value homes are significant financial assets, even if they are not always in the most expensive areas of the country.

    High family incomes support a good lifestyle. Two or more cars are common, at least one being a pricier new model. There is also money left over for investments in guaranteed income bonds, regular savings plans and high interest investments. Some householders will have a private pension plan.

    This is a gentler traditional lifestyle with outdoor activities such as golf, gardening, bird watching, hiking and visits to places of interest such as stately homes. Families only eat out from time to time. At home there is interest in good food or wines and subscriptions to magazines, such as Good Housekeeping.

    Readership of the Daily Express and Daily Telegraph reflects these families’ more traditional values. They are more likely listen to Radio 2 and Radio 4.

    That's rather true...

    THis site is so inaccurate. It said that the majority of people living in my old street would be wealthy manager-type characters living in detatched houses.

    All the houses in my old street are semi-detatched, ex council houses for the elderly.

    And I suppose it's accurate in that much (other than educated level and the children that are on this street make themselves noticed), but the written description is of a completely different environment, still that was a fun few minutes
