It is a grand old building. It was a very busy place. It's nice to stop in & be able to say I've been there. Sadly all the old clocks had been removed for some reason during our visit.

I saw the Post Office when it was receiving a new coat of paint so will be interested to see photos of it completed. The building and interior is the most impressive post office and worth a visit

Amazingly, its open for business on a Sunday. So buy your cards and take them with you to the PO for stamps and the post box.
