Agreed. Unlike the roads (which seem to be quite accurate), the quality of the place labels is awful right across the UK. Many places are duplicated several times and many of them are more than a mile away from their real location. Some of them appear to be been sourced from social media such as “the train to the seaside” etc. I’d estimate that perhaps 20% are correct.

I’ve been trying to tidy up areas that I know well, but it would take thousands of people many years to sort this out. I think the sources of the data need to be reviewed urgently.
