The Post Office closures for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport have been published today.

It appears that 2 Post Offices in Rossendale are marked for closure.

Longshoot
19 Birch Avenue,
Haslingden,
Rossendale,
BB4 5NF.

Lee Mill
95 Newchurch Road,
Bacup,
OL13 0DH.

I think there is now a public consultation exercise taking place.

Cheers.

I thought with Futures Park across the road, Lee Mill Post Office would be thriving.

Albeit not closing, Britannia Post Office is currently up for sale.

Re: Rossendale Post Office Closures

You would think a post office with all those houses around, on birch ave would remain open, its all about profit.

Re: Rossendale Post Office Closures

Cheers Johnny

The ones that have closed over the last few years do seem to be 'in the middle' of the main ones.

From Rochdale to Bacup, there used to be at least one post office every 2 miles.

Bacup
Greenhill
Britannia
Shawforth
Facit
Whitworth
Healey
Gale St
Whitworth Road
Townhead
Rochdale

Only 5 or 6 of them are left.

I don't know the Post Office in question. But looking at the post code on multimap, it does appear to be in the area covered by your photo.

Cheers.

Re: Rossendale Post Office Closures

I used to live on the shoot estate, 20 rosewood ave, and that post office was at the bottom of my street, its a shame it was closing, but it is a post office within a shop, and the shop always seemed to do fine, and the one in the centre of haslingden isnt too far away, i should know, my office is above it

Re: Rossendale Post Office Closures

I'll wave when i pass it tomorrow morning then photokid.

Yes thats the one on longshoot. Why that will be closing because most of the people now that do live on shoot will have their benefits paid into bank accounts instead of picking them up at the post office. The people who will be hit the hardest will be the pensioners who live up shoot. The pensioners houses that are at the bottom of Meadows Ave will be hard put to hike it down to town to get their money.
