On the 1 March 2021, Halifax, 15 Market Place, HG5 8AL, is due to close.

The nearest post offices to the closing Halifax branch are:

Each of these branches offers banking services – including deposits of up to £2,000 cash per transaction, free cash withdrawals and balance checks, as well as offering face-to-face access to government services, bill payment, foreign currency, travel insurance and, of course, postal services.

A spokesperson for the the National Federation of SubPostmasters, said:

Every post office plays a vital role within the heart of the local community. Post offices provide a reliable and essential service which has continued at a high standard across the whole of the UK throughout the pandemic.
