Parcel house, Seven Springs
Parcel house, Seven Springs
When I first uploaded this photograph of this small round thatched building standing beside the roundabout at the junction of the A435 and A436 I was unsure as to what it was. It looks like a bus shelter, but a later picture of it on this site describes it as a Parcel House where parcels were delivered in the days before door to door deliveries.

Further research through a forum has revealed that the BRITISH HISTORY ONLINE website describes this building as a 'Parcel Office'. It is described as follows: 'A small brick parcel office, which had been built at its junction with the Gloucester–Oxford road east of Seven Springs by 1894' Source: LinkExternal link
