Premier Stores, Northumberland Avenue – one of our nearest post offices
Now that the post office at Premier Stores on Whitley Street has closed, the Whitley Pump no longer has a convenient post office. The three closest post offices are almost equidistant from our Katesgrove Hill HQ.
There is now a new letter box at the bottom of Waterloo Road.
Christchurch Road – Edward VII
Whitley Street – George VI
Milman Road – Elizabeth
Are there any Victorian post boxes in Reading? The three post boxes nearest to the Whitley Pump are pictured above. The oldest is in the wall of Christ Church on Christchurch Road and dates from Edward VII’s reign, but there was a post box here in Queen Victoria’s reign.
