  6. Looks well worn for a relatively new one. I love looking for these postboxes and have found some interesting Victorian ones and even an Edward VII one.

  8. I had my very first trip to England in June. I did notice the red postal boxes and the red phone booths, though one of those had a defibrillator in it & not a phone.

  9. I used to live just across from this postbox......there used to be a bench just to the left of it where the pavement moves inwards. Looks an old box so it would probably be the one from my youth.

  10. I imagine this has been the starting point for many a letter over the decades!
