Watching one of the new hi- tech sorting machines at work at the opening of the Royal Mail Sorting Office at Stourton , Leeds , are l to r.... Denis Ferry the Royal Mail Area Manager for Leeds,Wakefield and Harrogate, Steve Hawksworth the Mail Centre Manager at Stourton and John Hornby Chief Executive of the Lettershop Group who officially opened the centre.


The new office would handle 15m items of mail a week, with special mail processors capable of sorting 30,000 letters an hour. Pictured are: Denis Ferry, area manager, Steve Hawksworth, centre manager and John Hornby, chief executive of the Lettershop Group

In October 2013, the Government sold its final stake in the Royal Mail for just over £591m.At the time, the Government was criticised for allowing the sale to go ahead, with many experts saying the business had been vastly undervalued.

The Post Office has had a presence in Leeds since the year 1797.
