History of the
Hesketh Bank Post Office

Hesketh Bank Post Office 1920
Robert Wright
Hesketh Banks 1st Postman

Joy Higham is a direct descendant of the first Postmaster of Hesketh Bank.

Joy writes "The 1st postmaster (my Great Great Grand Father) was Robert Wright and he was a Grocer & Postmaster at the old cottages on Shore Road facing the village school.

In 1879 his son (my Great Grand Father), also Robert, was appointed as the first postman in Hesketh Bank.

On the death of his father in 1891 he was appointed Postmaster. He remained at the old Post Office until 1909 when he transferred the business to a new house he had built further along Shore Rd (Brooklands) where it stands today.

My Great Grand Father was a man of means, having also built Rose Cottages (1898) & Sunnyside (1899) before building Brooklands."
