A few yards uphill from the main entrance to the Royal Mail Sorting Office is a small and inelegantly landscaped niche. The niche contains a war memorial which was moved to this site in 1991. Originally it was sited outside the Northern Delivery Office in Walton Road. It commemorates employees killed during the First World War but rather insensitively, the plaque marking the unveiling in its new site effectively dominates the memorial itself. The niche can be occupied at any time of night or day by homeless drinkers who, whilst generally good natured, do disfigure the area with their detritus of used cans and newspapers.
