The Post Office on Station Street occupied the building it was in for all or most of the time it has been standing. In 2014, it closed and relocated to a nearby Spar convenience store, also on Station Street. It is now occupied by the B.A.R.C. animal charity shop.
The Darby family ran the above Post Office in the 1970s.
Most of the other Post Offices in the area have also closed:-
Highthorn Post Office in Kilnhurst closed in January 2004.
