Visited with Spidermonkey and Zero Urbex back in march. If you have visited this place, you cant deny its stunning. Not much information on this place, especially what you haven't heard. Here's a little taken from other reports The Art Deco Post Office in The Midlands opened in 1935 and was built from coarse grained De Lank Granite. By 1954 this was the first post office in the UK to have a machine that informed package senders the postage to anywhere in the world. The site closed its doors in November 2007 and has sat ever since. It costs the taxpayer Â£30,000 a year and was sold to the City Council for Â£1.4 Million in 2008. Some bad photos due to only taking a gopro and my new G7X, which is a great camera when you know how to use it. Hope there are a few different angles than the usual.
First visited at the beginning of the year with a few of the locals. Then a recent revisit with AndyK!, Miz Firestorm and Kriegaffe9. Designed by Julius Bradley and opened in 1935 to replace a Victorian Post Office close-by on Granby Street. It also acted as a sorting office for City Centre and Central suburbs. It closed in 2007 with most services going to WHS on Granby Street and parcel collection going to an office on Campbell Street. In 2012 City Council purchased the property with the plan to use it as Customer Service Centre, to replace the offices on Wleford Road, but this idea has fallen flat on itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s face. It is now up for sale on a lowered price with the Council reeling over a Ã‚Â£30k a year cost of keeping the building. In May 2013 there was talk of student accommodation, which appears to have also fallen through. Heads up, rather pic heavy Cheers, SM
