Dallington Post Office Stores
We are very fortunate that this village still has its own shop, the Dallingon Post Office Stores, located on the main road and run by Val and Sabio de Souza. Please do make regular use of this valuable amenity so we don’t lose it.
For most other shopping requirements, the towns of Heathfield and Battle are about 6 miles away, and there are larger shopping centres at Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton.
We also still have mobile services that visit the village:
