Seven Springs deliveries
Seven Springs deliveries
This small building may have been a puzzle to passers by for some decades. Standing at the junction of the A435 and A436 roads at Seven Springs it is in fact a parcel office and has been here since at least 1894. It seems to have been rebuilt fairly recently as it was derelict in the 1950s. Bus crews and perhaps others would leave parcels here for delivery and collection. Maybe originally it had a door - a necessity in Cotswold winters. It is pleasing to see it has been rebuilt for the enjoyment - and puzzlement - of future generations. The left hand sign reads 'SEVEN SPRINGS INN - TRADITIONAL ALES - COUNTRY FOOD - FAMILIES WELCOME' and the right hand sign 'Gloucester A436 (A417)'. Time photo taken not available. Shown in original location. SO9617 : Parcel house, Seven Springs SO9617 : Parcel house at the junction A436/A435 SO9617 : Seven Springs roundabout
