Q16.15. GWR Receiving Offices

A GWR Timetable of 1902 lists their Receiving Offices, which were places where parcels would be received for onward dispatch by train. The vast majority were, of course, on the GW system, but a few, Liverpool, Manchester, Portsmouth & Southampton were in cities at the extremities of the system. However, they had an office at Norwich that was completely distant from the GW network and it would be interesting to know why, and were there ever any other isolated offices? (Edward Mann:10908)
