Pagan Eye: History, Folklore & Nature on Old Stamps

I was going through my box of old stamps because after 31 January, regular Royal Mail stamps without a barcode will no longer be valid. You can fill in a form and get them swapped for new ones, but I am taking the opportunity to use some up by sending greeting cards to friends.

As well as a few standard old-style stamps, I found ones with pictures on from bygone years. Luckily, these type aren't expiring yet. The Royal Mail website specifically says: "Special stamps with pictures on and Christmas stamps without a barcode will continue to be valid and don't need to be swapped out." You can find out more at the Royal Mail website.

I took a photo of some of the old special stamps to share here as the pictures are lovely and many of them have themes that are the kind of thing I blog about: history, folklore, nature and London. 

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
