This sub-post office has been selected for imminent closure, presumably due to extreme under-use. Residents will need to travel to Lancaster's main post office if it's urgent, or wait for a mobile post office which will apparently visit the church hall twice each week.
Situated on the most prominent road junction, this building was once Quernmore's pub, the 'Dog and Partridge'. Its presence on the edge of Wyresdale, traditionally a Methodist stronghold, slightly surprised me, not least because the current nameplate of the taller section on the right says 'Temperance House'. That dates from 1894 when, in a backlash against the drunkenness of navvies constructing the Thirlmere Aqueduct, the pub became a Temperance Hotel.
