About Gugh

Pronounced "keow", Gugh is one of the Isles of Scilly, connected to St Agnes by a sandy bar or tombolo. The island is just 1 km wide and 0.5 km long, and currently has a population of three people.

Not a great deal is known about the origins of Gugh Island's stamps, but our research suggests that they first appeared around 1972, and are thought to have been sold primarily as souvenirs. However, we have seen examples used on postcards in the 1970s and 1990s, cancelled with a "Gugh Island - Local Post" handstamp, which indicates that they may qualify as genuine local carriage labels.
