Museum of the Post Office in the Community
Blists Hill Victorian Town, Shropshire
Located above the Victorian Post Office at Blists Hill Victorian Town, Museum of the Post Office in the Community explores the vital role the Post Office has played in the lives of generations of Britons – from opening up long-distance communications to the masses, to providing essential services in the most remote communities in the country.
The exhibition tells this fascinating story through a series of remarkable objects including a five-wheeled ‘Hen and Chicks’ cycle, early examples of a telegram and instantly recognisable postal icons including pillar boxes and motorbikes.
