The General Post Office (GPO) was first established in England in 1660 by Charles II, later evolving to become both the state postal system and telecommunications carrier.

 

The GPO was abolished in 1969 and all remaining assets were passed over to the Post Office Corporation, changing it from a department of state to a statutory corporation. In 1981 the organisation divided into two indipendant companies - the Post Office and British Telecommunications (BT) as we know them today.

Post Office Ltd. remains a subsidiary of Royal Mail Group Ltd.
