Does anybody know a source of postcode sectors maps? The only one I
can find seems to be streetlist.co.uk and the mapping area they show
is quite small.

https://www.streetlist.co.uk/cb/cb6/cb6-3

Note that postcode sectors are a subdivison of postcode districts.

I mean something like this, but in electronic format, and without paywall.

That seems to be generated from Openstreetmap data via a library called
Leaflet. If I search for that there are a variety of other postcode maps
available:

It might be possible to make similar to streetlist with a bit of tweaking.

Another option is to load up the streetlist page, right click over the map
(I'm in Firefox), go 'Inspect', and look for

<div id="map" style="width: 100%; height: 500px; border: 1px solid rgb(170,
170, 170); position: relative; outline: currentcolor none medium;"
class="leaflet-container leaflet-touch leaflet-retina leaflet-fade-anim
leaflet-grab leaflet-touch-drag leaflet-touch-zoom" tabindex="0">

If you edit that (double click that HTML line) to something like
width: 2000px; height: 1000px
you get a bigger map. Of course, it's just for you and won't persist over a
reload.

In all cases, you need to click "show map" to show the map, but having
done so you can then make it full screen.
