If you found this site interesting, then you might want to look at some of the following

Since this dataset was released there has been a good deal of interest in it from the media, housing market analysts and the general public. Some of the sources below may be of interest if you want to read more about it - and go into more depth than I have on this site. 

1. The Council of Mortgage Lenders postcode data page is now live and also includes links to other lending data that recently became available (e.g. personal loans).

2. The release of this data was covered on the business pages of several newspapers in December 2013, including The Guardian and The Telegraph. The former focused on the fact that London accounts for more than 25% of all mortgage loans while the latter noted how the lending patterns revealed a north-south divide. 

3. A post on the Open Data Blog from early in 2014 illustrates the fact that I'm not the first person to think of putting something like this together, though this example is based on CartoDB. I think this was put together by Steve Peters and it provides lots of interesting insight - and useful disclaimers about the use of Census data in helping us interpret the lending data. 

4. Some analysis by Mortgage Solutions illustrates the interest in this data from mortgage market analysts. They note that in the SW11 6 postcode area there is currently more than £649 million of outstanding mortgage loans. 

5. As far as I'm aware, RBS were the only lender to actually produce some maps along with their data release. They mapped lending at the postcode area level (i.e. aggregations of postcode sectors) and they also did this for other lending data.

6. The Birmingham Mail also did a little analysis of this and produced a map using Fusion Tables, though it is a bit different to mine as it uses postcode areas. This is part of the 'Behind the Numbers' project at the Mail. Well worth a look.

7. Finally, here's the original announcement about the dataset from July 2013. At the time, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander said: "It is a major step forward in terms of transparency and should encourage competition by helping smaller lenders to identify gaps in the market and allowing businesses to hold their local bank to account where they aren’t lending."
