TQ3473 : Forest Hill: former Wood Vale Post Office

Forest Hill: former Wood Vale Post Office
Forest Hill: former Wood Vale Post Office
This almost-end-terrace shop, at 120 Wood Vale, was Wood Vale Post Office until its closure in March 2004. The painted sign has been retained even though the shop and its neighbours have been converted to residential use.

Google StreetView in February 2018 also shows a Victorian postbox on the forecourt, close to the pavement edge but with its slot facing the shop rather than the road. No doubt this has been removed because the owners would need to allow access onto the property to the public posting a letter, if it were retained.
