by Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell in October 1989. The two sang and played guitar, and had been friends since they were six years old. At a Sunday youth group, they began making music in an indie pop band called The Pumpkin Fairies, with bassist Mike Cottle and drummer Adrian Sell. When the Fairies disbanded, Slowdive formed with drummer Adrian Sell, and Nick Chaplin, his friend who played bass. A third guitarist named Christian Savill, previously of the band "Eternal", joined when he became the only person to answer an advert from the band. The ad called for a female guitarist, but Savill wanted to join so badly he offered to wear a dress. He was subsequently recruited.

In February, 1235 Hugh de Wells died and the canons of Lincoln cathedral (Diocese of Lincoln) met to elect his successor. They soon were at a deadlock and could not reach a majority. Fearing that the election would be taken out of their hands, they settled on a compromise candidate, Grosseteste. He was consecrated in June of that same year Fryde, et. al. ''Handbook of British Chronology'' p. 255 at Reading (Reading, Berkshire). British History Online Bishops of Lincoln accessed on 28 October 2007 He instituted an innovative program of visitation, a procedure normally reserved for the inspection of monasteries. Grosseteste expanded it to include all the deaneries (deanery) in each archdeaconery of his vast diocese. This scheme brought him into conflict with more than one privileged corporation, but in particular with his own chapter, who vigorously disputed his claim to exercise the right of visitation over their community. The dispute raged hotly from 1239 to 1245, with the chapter launching an appeal to the papacy. In 1245, while attending the First Council of Lyons, the papal court ruled in favor of Grosseteste.

Within two years it was expected that coding would be used in Aberdeen, Belfast, Brighton, Bristol, Bromley, Cardiff, Coventry, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne, Newport, Reading (Reading, Berkshire), Sheffield, Southampton and the Western district (W postcode area) of London. "Someone, Somewhere in postal code", ''The Times'', 12 October 1966 By 1967 codes had been introduced to Aberdeen, Southampton, Brighton and Derby. "Post Office plans faster service", ''The Times'', 4 July 1967 In 1970 codes were introduced to the Western and North Western (NW postcode area) London areas. "London in brief", ''The Times'', 15 September 1970 In December 1970 Christmas mail was franked with the message "Remember to use the Postcode", although codes were only used to sort mail in a handful of sorting offices.
