Killigrew Street Post Office in Falmouth ­ the largest port in Cornwall, has been sold through Christie & Co. The attractive, double fronted shop has been restored in the style of the original Falmouth Packet Office. The Packet Service, which operated between 1688 and 1852, was the forerunner of the modern Post Office and, in its hey-day, Falmouth was the designated Packet station for foreign mail. The sellers, who are retiring, won several awards including Best Truro Community Post Office' and Third Best Regional Post Office in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall' in 1998. Post office salary is a reported £30,646. Freehold asking price was £95,000 and the price achieved is undisclosed. {{PROPERTY }}
