Some descriptions have this listed as “side of Post Office”, no longer a post office here, my wife, a native of these parts cannot remember there ever being a Post Office here!
There is a Post Office Sorting Depot around the back and 100m down The Parade a “Costcutters” has a small Post Office but ignore them if you want to find this item.

It can be found on the corner of The Parade and a service road on the side of a shop (St Saviours). It’s actually about 100mm above the road level but would be the same level as the pavement outside the shops.
A bit farther down the Parade is a rather striking Clocktower (all 4m of it) erected for Queen Victoria’s Silver Jubilee in the 1800s. Walk for another 100m and you will find the original site of St Saviours Church (a brick Church in Vicarage Road, round the corner replaced it).

Enjoy!
