Former postal sorting office, Winchmore Hill, N21
One of a number of postal sorting or delivery offices in the London area, built between 1900 and 1910, in an Edwardian Baroque style. The Winchmore Hill sorting office was built in 1904 to the designs of Office of Works architect Jasper Wager. Although one or two of the Edwardian sorting offices are still in use (e.g. Clapham) many others have found new uses - the Winchmore Hill building has been converted into office accommodation. From an exterior point of view it is one of the finest examples of a building of this sort, with a Royal coat of arms featuring prominently on the Station Road elevation. Also retained has been the post box (although de-commissioned) on the pavement outside the building. This has a decorative wrought iron surround.
