Post Box #4 Askew Walk, Kirkby in Furness (LA17 87)

Post box in the row of cottages in  Kirkby in Furness, Cumbria  It is much younger than the building it is part of, it is an marked ER so was put in sometime from 1952 onwards.  I don't think the house will notice much inside for these are good thick walls, as may be judged by the setting of the door.  Other amenities on this road include the two village pubs, one at each end.

The village of Kirkby is an agglomeration of 6 hamlets but given the name because the Furness Railway line station, built in the 19th Century, and running up the far north west coast of England, used that hamlets name.   There are postboxes in all 6 places.

A cute little row of cottages and the red of the post box really stands out against the white wall! A lovely photo!

And thank you for joining in my Weekend Mailbox once again!

I love the charming cottages and how the mailbox was built within one of the walls of the cottages. This is my first time to join Weekend Mailboxes and I hope I could keep up regularly.
