The Postellers was a voluntary-led group which took young people out to the countryside and seaside, staying in YHS Youth Hostels, over a period of 48 years. Almost 4,000 young people came out with the Postellers during that period. Most of the trips were over a weekend to places within 70 miles of London, but each year there were longer trips, usually to wild places. The aim of this website is to pass on our passionate belief in the benefits of such experiences for young people in the hope that it will encourage others to continue the work. There is more information about the Postellers on the About page.
