Post Office

I posted a picture of the old Post Office some while back.

Here is the new one. It can be a bit cramped and when busy the queues often stretch through the door. Most of our old local P.O.s have been closed down so you have to come into town to buy your stamps.

In nearby Ashton there is uproar over plans to close the town's well loved Post Office and move the operation into W.H.Smiths.

The old Post Office has more character. However, if this is anything like the small towns where I grew up the post office experience is more about who you meet and visit with than it is about the character of the building.
