Brief History of Business: The Wakefield family (A very well known Brewood family) owned the shop and post office for many years. They made their own bread and produced their own honey and eggs to sell in the shop. They sold the shop to Jerry Lloyd Davies who again ran the shop and post office for a number of years. Jerry sold out to the present owners in about 1971. The post office still has its own sorting office, sorting the mail and delivering to Brewood and Bishop’s Wood.

Other Information:  In the days of the Wakefields, it was Margaret Wakefield who was mostly responsible for running the post office. There used to be a bake house at the rear of the shop where Kathleen Wakefield baked bread and cakes for the shop. John Wakefield worked the garden where there were some 50 bee hives for the production of the honey and free range chickens providing the eggs for the shop. Mary Wakefield, when she was not in the shop, was kept very busy with embroidery and tapestry. She did a lot of work for the church. She also wrote a book called "Ancient Brewood" under the pen name of Mara.
