Bexhill Post Office
Bexhill Post Office is typical of the inter-war post offices built by the Office of Works in what came be known as "Post-Office Georgian". The architect of this building was David Nicholas Dyke, who was responsible for the design of large number of similar buildings. Often built in red brick, the only concession to decoration was often made in the detailing of the doorway: in Bexhill, for example, the broken pediment and Greek columns. A common feature was also the incorporation of the caduceus motif, the symbol representing Mercury, the messenger of the gods. Although a number of these inter-war post offices have been closed or converted to other uses, Bexhill remains open for business and has served the public since 1931.
