Mill Village Post Office

Mill Village Post OfficeThis c.1903 picture shows the edge of the mill village, now the approach to David Livingstone’s Memorial. The village gates and gatehouses stood on this road near the bridge, and were closed every night after a 10.00 p.m. curfew. The round building on the right is marked as the site of the post office in maps of 1899, but has long since been demolished, along with its partner across the road. Of all the buildings in this shot, what is now known as the Village Bar remains. Today, both sides of the road are occupied by modern housing schemes.
