In 1984, after almost fifteen years of independence from the British Post Office, the Guernsey Postal Headquarters was able to officially declare open a purpose-built headquarters which combined on a single site, functions which were previously undertaken in four separate buildings in St. Peter Port. Prior to 1794, Guernsey's "post office" was housed in a private shop in St. Peter Port's High Street. Between 1845 and 1883, it moved to various premises. A need for further accommodation resulted in the building of a separate sorting office in 1962, although by the late 1970s this was becoming inadequate and extra premises for parcels were rented. Plans were laid for the building of a new headquarters at Guelles Road, St. Peter Port, to cater to all Guernsey Post Office sorting and administrative functions.
