The Post Lady

The post lady and I have been getting to know each other rather well recently but, before you jump to conclusions, I should explain that in the town of Craven Arms we are blessed or blighted (depending on your view) with 3 firms of Agents. 

We have the land agents, Balfours, who are very posh so we don't speak to them much!  There is McCartneys across the road from ourselves who are auctioneers and then ourselves Samuel Wood & Company.  This is, however, when it gets complicated because at McCartneys they have a Samuel Wood working for them.  Not only does it confuse clients when they ring up our office because they think they have just been speaking to him, it is also upsetting the postal services as young Samuel Wood's mail is being delivered to us and vice versa.

I think the only way around the problem is for one of us to move!! If anyone has any openings for a keen young Estate Agent then please contact Samuel Wood - just make sure you get the right address!

If you are looking for a country cottage then a recent instruction may be of interest.  Maplewall is in a beautiful location a short distance from the village of Wistanstow (home of the Wood Brewery - a blatant plug for my brother's Brewery).  It stands in lovely gardens of around 3/4 acre in a quiet position.  The cottage has 2 reception rooms with 3 double bedrooms.  An extra plus is the excellent outbuildings, which could be used for Studio/Workshop.
A must see property
