"The Last Post", High Road, Loughton
"The Last Post", High Road, Loughton
Many of our purpose-built post offices have been converted to other uses, especially public houses or restaurants. This particular example from the late 1920s or early 1930s is a typical example of a "Post Office Georgian" building, designed to harmonize with its environment. The architect was Archibald Scott of the Office of Works. Like "The Penny Black" at Bicester, the name of this establishment recalls the building's role in the postal service.
