New Premises for The British Postal Museum and Archive Receive Planning Consent



New BPMA drawings

The new Postal Museum will provide access to the BPMA’s amazing collections of 400 years of postal, social and design history, including photographs, posters, vehicles, pillar boxes, employment records of millions of people and a world-class stamp collection.

The new centre will allow the BPMA to exhibit objects from its fascinating museum collection, which is currently held in storage. The new state-of-the-art premises will also include educational facilities for visiting schools, digitisation facilities and a purpose built Archive repository, built to modern environmental and security standards.

Adrian Steel, Director at the BPMA said; "The BPMA is delighted to have gained planning permission for our planned new home in Calthorpe House. We are really excited about moving this project forward to create a place for people to come and learn about the UK’s pioneering role in developing postal communications, which has shaped the world we live in."
