There are seven houses in the rural hamlet of Barforth and each resident must travel 14 miles - in total - to collect their own post. That's because their mail is currently kept at the nearest post office in the village of Gainford, rather than taken to their home.
Royal Mail suspended its deliveries to Barforth in 2009 after the bridge into the hamlet was closed for safety reasons. The only other route in is a 7 mile dirt track, which has recently been upgraded.
Many people in Barforth say they're tired of picking up their own post and Royal Mail should re-start the delivery service. The company says it has been waiting for the bridge to re-open but, in light of the recent improvements to the other road into the hamlet, it will now review the situation.
