Following the local public engagement, the poster below confirms our final plans for the branch.



Due to low customer usage, Earl Sterndale Hosted Outreach Post Office service, operated by the postmaster from Ashbourne Road Post Office, will cease operating from week commencing Monday 16 May 2022.



Local customers may use any convenient Post Office service. Details of two possible alternative Post Office services are provided below:

  • Longnor Post Office, Longnor, Buxton, SK17 0NS
  • Higher Buxton Post Office, 12a High Street, Buxton, SK17 6EU

We will continue to monitor and review the demand for Post Office services in the local community of Earl Sterndale, however, any future service needs to be sustainable for the person operating the service, and for Post Office Limited.

Further details of the alterntives branches are provided in the letter below.
