History

Caption for Bransgore, the Post Office c1960

Avon Castle 1891 This late 19th-century mock castle was built 'at great cost and with the best materials and workmanship' by John Turner Turner, a renowned sportsman and big game hunter. With its 13-acre grounds and Avon river frontage, the castle became a popular weekend retreat for Turner Turner's many friends. There was even a chapel and a private railway halt.

Memories of Bransgore

Visits With My Auntie Joan

I loved this charming village, I remember the 'fishmonger' and the 'greengrocer' bringing their wares from door to door with their 'horsedrawn' carts (yes, even in 1956). I used to walk her dog with auntie Joan to this very post office to mail letters and get 'bits and pieces". Auntie Joan always loved the small country places, she lived in many places like this because of her husband's work. I had the privelage of visiting all her 'little hidaways' throughout England and Scotland.

Parcels

The Post Office brings back many happy memories. In 1954 to 1957 I served in the RAF at Sopley. Some of us would walk to the Post Office to send letters home & meet friends we had made in the village. If anyone remembers the good times we had... Thankyou. - B Haywood
