Mobile Post Office update.

I've shown a number of Mobile Post Office datestamp impressions over the last few months, each accompanied by some detail of locations served - not always accurate, I admitted.

Thanks to Alastair N who has provided what he hopes is a complete list of Mobile Post Offices and the current locations served.  It's too long to quote here - there are over 60 different services, and one in the Lake District appears to serve over 40 locations.  Quite how that can happen in a normal week I don't know; maybe there is more than one van but in other instances two-van branches are shown as two separate entries.

This post summarises the Mobiles that I have already mentioned.  The original posts have also been updated.

  1. Thanks Alan and Alastair,

    The one that caught my eye was Ripon....as it includes Masham, home of the wonderful Black Sheep Brewery....Many moons ago we took the girls on a weeks holiday in a wooden chalet....it included their first brewery tour! So, having gone all that way from Bristle, where was the guide from? Stroud (Glos), our hometown, where, living up "in the hills" south-westerlys carried the smell of the Stroud Brewery products to us!!!!
