This is a really busy Post Office even though it is a bit out of the main village centre, but it's the only one in Armthorpe and a lot of people use it.
It does get really busy and it is a bit cramped in the Post office side, but they're quite quick and efficient. I've sent a few things abroad and they always know what they're doing and give me all the right labels and things.
They've got a bit of a parking problem but you can usually get parked somewhere outside without too much hassle. There's also a cashpoint outside - I'm not sure if it charges or not, sorry!!
Armthorpe Post Office (or Pot Office as the sign outside says!) is a fair-sized branch with a shop to the front and several counters in an L-shape at the back.
I have used it several times to dispose of Ebay tat, and it always seems to be busy but they have a lot of counters and the queue moves fairly quickly. If I'm posting a lot of stuff this is better than going into a single-manned place as I don't feel guilty about holding up the people behind!
I've not found there to be much of a community atmosphere, but I think that's because they're kept so busy and not necessarily a bad thing as they're providing a good efficient service.
You can park on the road outside but it does get crowded and the main road is busy. Normally you can squeeze in somewhere though as the Post Office is set on its own quite a bit away from the main shopping area.
