Oxenholme railway station’s postal services are to be restored in November | So Good News


OXENHOLME railway station will soon have its postal service restored as an outreach branch is planned for the site.

Post office services in Oxenholme will be restored next month with an outreach branch at Oxenholme Lake District Railway Station.

Avanti West Coast has provided space for Oxenholme Post Office to operate at their train station in Oxenholme Road, Oxenholme, Kendal, LA9 7HG

This service starts on 7 November.

The Postmaster for Appleby will operate the service twice a week on a Monday from 11.00 – 13.00 and Thursday: 12.30 – 14.30.

The postmaster for Appleby will be able to offer the same range of products and services as in his own full-time department. Oxenholme will be the eleventh outreach post office delivered by the postmaster for Appleby and his team.

This will restore the service to the community after the previous Postmaster resigned in February 2020 and the premises at 73 Helmside Road, Oxenholme, Kendal, LA9 7HA were withdrawn for Post Office use.

The outreach post office at Oxenholme Post Office will be a temporary solution while we continue to look for a permanent solution.

Samuel Williams, Post Office Network Lead, said: “We are delighted to be restoring post office services to Oxenholme as we know how important a post office is to a community.

“We are grateful to Avanti West Coast for providing space at the train station and for the postmaster of Appleby to provide this temporary outreach service while we continue to look for a permanent solution.”
