AB42 1JA is a large user postcode in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire. It was first introduced in June 1996.

'Large User' postcodes are allocated to organisations which receive large amounts of post. Unlike standard geographic postcodes, which cover up to 80 addresses, a large user postcode is unique to a single address.

To the best of our knowledge, the current address of this postcode is:
Masson & Glennie, PO Box 15, Peterhead AB42 1JA.

The geographic coordinates assigned to a large user postcode may not necessarily be the actual coordinates of the location to which mail is delivered. If the address is a PO Box, then the coordinates will usually be the Royal Mail sorting office which handles mail for that postcode. In other cases, the coordinates of the postcode may be the headquarters, or registered office, of an organisation rather than the building which receives mail.

AB42 1JA is in the Peterhead travel to work area. NHS services are provided by the Aberdeenshire Community Health Partnership Primary Care Trust.
