Mount Pleasant, Thundersley was clearly a busy place at one time.

Mount Pleasant mail centre in Clerkenwell,  London, England previously operated as one of the largest sorting offices in the world.

The street called Mount Pleasant ironically gained its name in the 1730s after locals had begun to dump cinders and other refuse.

The centre was officially opened on 30 August 1889.
