Earlier in the century the office was on Penn Road, until it moved here. This was Upper Penn Post Office until 2003, when it moved back into the Penn Road (A449) to its present position. SO9096 : Upper Penn Post Office, Wolverhampton. The pillar box, which used to be outside this shop was moved, not outside the new post office, oh no! It was moved across Mount Road in the opposite direction, and planted outside the pub, SO9096 : Mount Tavern so that instead of crossing no roads after purchasing one's stamps, one now has to cross two including the busy A449 and walk 50 metres, (...and it hasn't had a lick of paint since!) (The people in charge insist they are intelligent!)

Luckily the sub-postmaster and his wife are friendly and helpful, and local people do not want this post office closed down.

September 2008. It was closed down.
