The Post Office, Painswick (1)

Recent Photograph of The Post Office (1) (Painswick)

The Post Office at Painswick is widely claimed to be the oldest working Post Office in Britain, but apparently this claim is a bit misleading. The building it is housed in dates from 1428, and thus it is probably the oldest known building which also contains a Post Office. It is not known when the Post Office itself first opened its counter, so there are probably other contenders for the title.
