Too Late!

This is a photo of Fleet Street, in Ashton, which shows the Royal Mail sorting office on the left and the rather unlovely office block behind, which now calls itself Oakglade House.

As I was taking the photo, I noticed the couple on the left trying the door of the sorting office, only to find it locked. You know what it's like - you are waiting in for a parcel, but you just nip out to get a pint of milk or something for 5 minutes and that's when the postman arrives and pushes a card through your door!

As many of you who have gone to the sorting office to pick up such a parcel will know, Ashton's office is only open until 12 noon. Needless to say, it was gone twelve and the door was firmly locked!


  1. Tear that building down.
    It's horrible

  2. i used to visit my friends mum in fleet st often ,just round the corner from ,cavendish street ,tghere were just three houses on that block and the back of works or shops ,i dont recognise this now ,

  3. same in Hyde the sorting office closes at noon which is earlier than the time at which the postman usually delivers the mail.
