A first class resource

Regular readers of Living Geography will know that we love a good stamp issue...
We've featured stamps on UK landmarks, and sustainable fishing and Shackleton to name but a few.
Brendan Conway alerted me to the new Postal Museum which is opening later this year.

It will be located at Mount Pleasant, London, and will hopefully be of interest for geography, history, science, technology etc.

One particularly eye-catching activity is that it'll be possible to travel on a stretch of the famous 'mail rail', the alternative underground built for the Post Office.  Its tunnels were first opened 100 years ago this year.

Here are the contacts:

The museum is looking for teachers across all Key Stages to join their Teachers’ Panel which meets on a termly basis to discuss plans. In return they offer discounts and opportunities to trial and test new programmes.  To express interest email Sally Sculthorpe, Learning Officer: sally.sculthorpe@postalmuseum.org
