One of the "most impressive" post offices in the North West is to be closed as part of a restructuring plan.
11 post offices are to close and six more could join them
The Lyceum Post Office, in Liverpool city centre, is to be shut along with 10 sub-post offices in the city.
The Post Office said the Lyceum was not viable and the list could be extended to six other sub-post offices.
Conservationists say the ceiling at the Lyceum, restored to its original state in the 1980s, makes it one the region's most impressive post offices.
The sub-post office closures are part of a national reorganisation to "ensure the viability" of those that remain.
Those closing are: Town Row, Stoneycroft and Lower Breck Road in West Derby; Window Lane, Gateacre; Cressington Road in Garston; Derby Lane and Picton Road in Wavertree; Knotty Ash and Aintree post office in Warbeck Moor.
The city centre Post Office moved into part of the 204-year-old Lyceum Buildings in 1984.
It was during this decade that the ceiling in the post office hall was restored to the design of the original architect Thomas Harrison.
The work was described at the time by Mike King, former conservation officer with Liverpool City Council, as creating "the most impressive post office in the North West".
