Image by John Vincent dated: July, 2004
All the facilities that one would expect from a Post Office but here you can top up your larder with fresh provisions like milk, cakes and bread and a small selection of fresh fruit and vegetables. If you are staying in one of the many holiday cottages in Staithes then the Post Office will save you having to walk up to the Coop at the top of the hill.
You can also buy maps and books especially those about Staithes and the local area. If you are very observant you will note that the Post Masters and the authors of many of the books and leaflets about Staithes are one of the same.
Jean and Peter Eccleston's book A History and Geology of Staithes is a must if you want to know all about the place. They will be pleased to sell you a copy and answer your questions.
