Gorsley Post Office
The Gorsley Post Office & Stores has been one of the centers of village life in Gorsley since its construction in the 19th century. Originally known as the Royal Stores after its builder Royal Cracknell this charming little shop was a fine example of the increasingly rare 'Village Shop'.
Unfortunately the shop has now closed its doors for the last time following the retirement of Gordon and Diane Martin in August 2017. It will be greatly missed by locals and passing visitors alike.
There is now a Community Shop Project underway in collaboration with Gorsley Baptist Church that hopes to re-establish a shop and Post Office that will be run by the the local community. There is already a web site for the Gorsley Community Shop Projest where you will be able to keep up to date with progress.
There is currently an interim Mobile Post Office in the Gorsley Baptist Church (upper) Car Park on Wednesday 2.30 - 3.30 pm and Friday 2.15 - 3.15 pm that offers all the facilities that are available in a normal Post Office. Refrehments are also available in the Lighthouse building on Wednesday.
