Memories of Burton

Burton Post Office C1968

This could not have been as early as 1960 as at that time the Post Office was in a single storey lean-to structure at the right of the main cottage. The main floor of the cottage was converted to the new shop and post office in the late 1960s and the lean-to demolished and the new two storey section you see here was added to the older part of the cottage.
