Post Box by The Green, Borwick, Lancashire. How useful if you lived in this house to just pop to the post. But then there are 116,088 post boxes in the UK so perhaps no-one is too far from one. We are a long time away from 1852 when the author Anthony Trollope installed an experimental post box in the Channel Island.
I do like wall post boxes as they nestle into the landscape. Traditionally made of cast iron they are painted every three years. This one has the royal insignia VR so was installed sometime between 1881 to 1901. Postie is up early on a Saturday as the collection is at 7.30 am.
