Just like the Google search you can enter it in the URL as a query, worked perfectly for me. It's a location near Southport, right?

If you're looking to display it as a normal maps page, you'd want to use (Postcode format doesn't matter.)

But if you're looking to use the data from the page, you should be using the Google Maps API. Doing it by requesting a user-end URL could potentially end up with your server getting banned from making requests.
