The problem of twin addresses Leibniz was wrong

2 George Street BB5 0HD, and 2 George Street BB5 0ET, both in Accrington, Lancashire, are only 235 metres apart.

Yes, that’s right. These twins are less than a sixth of a mile apart. When I set out to find the closest twins, I thought they might perhaps be around a mile and a half apart, which would itself be quite silly. But 235 metres is definitely in the “What were they thinking?” category.

Here is the full and interesting discussion, including a consideration of method.  What other inefficiencies lurk out there?  Don’t even ask about 443 Manchester Road!  Via Anecdotal.
