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 it’s face. It is now up for sale on a lowered price with the Council reeling over a £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 (y)
