We are all used to posting a letter or card and to it being delivered to its destination within a day or so. But how did our postal service start and how did it affect your local area?
The Historic mail route exhibition is an interesting and informative insight into the origins of the Mail Route in North Wales.
It tracks the history of the London to Holyhead horse powered mail route from its creation with the horse back post boys through to the horse drawn coaches and stagecoaches and the perils they faced to its demise at the dawn of the steam trains.
The exhibition will first go on public display at the Edith Bankes Memorial Hall in Northop 5.30pm to 8pm on February 11 and then open to the public all day Saturday February 12.
The exhibition has been created by Northop Heritage with the support of the Royal Mail and Cadwyn Clwyd.
