Its sad to see our Post Offices closed, one by one they are slowly disappearing. Only the post box remains. Where is the nearest Post Office from there? After saying that it cant have been a busy Office at the top of Haigh road.

Colin, Just down the road near Finger Post.

Harry, My grandparents came from Aspull & I visit the Cemetery just on the bend. At St Davids. But do you know who holds the grave yard plan of the old part?

I used to call in the Post Office when I was around Haigh and there was always a few people in the shop, they also did car road tax then which attracted a lot of folk in, so I don't think they did so bad business wise, and it was somewhere to go to hear all the local news as well.

Thanks Harry.

The sign on the lamp post says it all - where does Aspull end, and Haigh begin?

lived in aspull a few years ago when the post office was there.glad to see its still being used but what an awful garish colour it needs to be toned down a little in keeping with the lovley countryside around

A pale green would be nice, it would go with the brown,
