About This Image

This was the Village Post Office, in Newchurch, until just a few years ago. The couple who ran the Post Office, also had part of the Post Office as a small store, where you could purchase everyday essentials. Since their retirement, the Old Post Office has been returned to a private residence. There is still a post box outside but this is all that remains of this property's previous life. The wisteria that flowers on the front of the building, is, probably, as well known as the Post Office itself!
Today, the Post Office resides in a very small wooden building, just along the same street and is only open part time.

Newchurch gets its name from the new church which was built in 1087 by the monks of Lyra in Normandy.

I feel in love with this picture. What a wonderful place for love letters. *g* Imagine!! The wisteria covering one's own home like that. What a great thing to wish for. Thanks for saving and for showing all the beauty found at the Post Office. I thought I saw a monk in the shadows. *g*

Thank you all for the nice comments you've left on the Old Post Office. I think it's the wisteria that makes this building more interesting to view but the little village is typically, rural England. Thanks for looking. :)

Jas you have captured a beautiful photograph of this Village Post Office. Those wisteria are absolutely gorgous that run along the building. Well captured.
