Here is a brief history of the exciting Lundy Puffin Postage Stamps. The earliest date recorded for the opening of the Lundy Island Post Office is 3rd March 1887, though it is unlikely that it did in fact operate until 1892, when the GPO laid a cable from Croyde in North Devon across the Bristol Channel to Lundy island and built a stone cable hut where the cable terminated-against the east wall of the keep of Marisco Castle. The cable hut became known as the Post Office, which contained a table and counter, pigeonholes for sorting letters, a stationery cabinet, as well as two bunks and a cooking stove. The latter used by linemen sent from the mainland to lay and service the cables connected to the island’s two lighthouses, there to warn Bristol Channel shipping, which subsequently came into service in 1896. Still a long way yet to the now familiar Lundy Postage Stamps!
