Bristol Penny Post - "No.25" Wrington and "No.60" Aust

Here are a couple of Receiving House handstamps from the Bristol Penny Post, both used after the abolition of the local Penny Post.  The first is a partial unboxed "No.25" handstamp from Wrington used in 1846.  Wrington used a number of different "No.25" handstamps and some clarification of dates used is needed between the 4th and 5th ones.

Aust (or Old Passage) is by the old ferry crossing of the Severn.  The example below is a late use of the unboxed "No.60" handstamp that was used there.
