    Default For the Brits...

    I have an address that I don't understand.

    RAPRA Technology Ltd.
    Shawbury
    Shrewsbury
    Shropshire
    SY4 4NR
    UK

    Can someone enlighten me as to the street address, the town (city) and what's up with the SY4 4NR thing? Or, better yet, just explain the location...

    Thank you in advance.

    SY4 4NR is a post code , akin to your zip code I guess. It means the post office may actually be able to find it

    Looks like Shawbury is a suberb of the town of Shrewsbury.

    What is the "Shropshire" part?

    Are all the locations ending in "shire" the same level of organization?

    just a name for a county... -shire has nothing to do with the 'level of organisation' though.
