Cury: former Cury Cross Lanes Post Office
Cury: former Cury Cross Lanes Post Office
A post office was established at Cury in 1861 and was renamed Cury Cross Lanes twenty years later. It closed on 24 November 2003 but still resembled a post office and shop seven years later: see SW6921 : Cury Cross: Cury Stores and Post Office.

On 19 May 2005 a post office service was restored to Cury, on Thursday mornings, by way of the postmaster at nearby Gweek coming here and operating a mobile set-up at a hatch in the village hall. That arrangement continues to this day (see SW6821 : Cury: post office sign at the village hall) and he has also served Helford and St. Martin similarly since September 2011.

See SW6921 : Cury: phone box at Cross Lanes for a slightly wider view of the building, including the fences around the site.
