Carol and Steve Aspery took over Chilbolton Post Office and Stores in 1997.There are records of Postmasters in Chilbolton as far back as 1845 serving the village from several different properties. There was a Post Office and shop at Whiteway’s Cottage in the Edwardian era and a Post Office and blacksmith’s shop on the site of the Abbot’s Mitre. The present Post Office and shop was originally a 17th century thatched dwelling known as Rose Cottage. The cottage was extended and established as the village shop in 1919.
