Stoney Cross Post Office Mystery

stoney cross

Stoney Cross today consists of a handful of dwellings, a filling station, a Travel Lodge hotel, and a Little Chef restaurant; all alongside the modern A31 road between Ringwood and Cadnam, near Southampton. There is no post Office now, but there was one in the nineteenth century, despite there being no village to utilise it. Roger Harris, an active member of Romsey Local History group, with particular interest in the postal service,, uncovered the background to the mystery of this lonesome post office using a  variety of archive sources.
