For the Whitby and Pickering Railway Company. Original part in hammered sandstone; extension in bordered tooled sandstone with added red brick lean-to in English garden wall bond. Pantile roofs, and stone and rebuilt brick stacks. L-shaped on plan. Railway front: 2-storey and attic, 3-window, gable-end: 2-storey and basement, 3-window extension at right. Gable end has plank double; doors beneath painted cambered timber lintel at left of inserted 6-pane sash with painted stone sill. On first floor, 2-light mullioned windows flank later inserted 3-light casement. Lunette attic window in architrave, beneath semicircular hoodmould. Lintels to inserted windows are bordered and tooled. Overhanging bracketed eaves with plain bargeboards. Right side stack at base of pitched roof. Extension has C20 replacement door in raised elliptical-arched surround, between unequal 9-pane sashes. 12-pane sashes on first floor and 6-pane on second: central windows on both floors are blind. All windows have painted stone sills and tooled lintels. Raised first floor band. Left-of-centre stack. Right return: 2-storey,1- window gable end with 1-storey lean-to extension at right. Two panelled doors with overlights in extension. Tall 18-pane shop window beneath tooled lintel on ground floor; 2-light large-pane casement window, beneath ogee-shaped lintel with blind Gothick tracery in tympanum, in gable end. Original building probably built as warehousing and used jointly by the railway company and the licensee of the Tunnel Inn (now the Station Tavern, q.v.), John Buttery. A stable adjoining the warehouse on the east said to have been destroyed by Second World War bomb. By 1856, the present Post Office was in existence, combined with a grocer's shop. The ground floor of the warehouse was still used for that purpose, while the second floor had become a reading-room and library, and the third floor a shoemaker's shop.
