The spa town of Bath has played a huge role in communications and the development of the postal system still in use today. As far back as ancient Egypt there has been some sort of postal system in place in many parts of the world. During Roman times messengers were used to convey details and messages via horseback, and today we often see the Royal Mail postal vans out and about doing their job.
