Biddestone Old Post Office

A Memory of Biddestone

I am searching the family history and would appreciate any information on the Old Post Office in the village for that purpose only. I am researching Sarah Ann Whitbread who was born in Biddestone about 1851. Mother was, Ann Whitbread, and father, Thomas Whitbread, who was a harness maker in the village at that time. Ann Whitbread was the post office mistress and her daughter Sarah took over from her about 1881 or 1891.
