This post box (letter box) is so typical of the more remote parts of England/Scotland and Wales etc. Quite often they are tucked away behind brambles, set into cottage walls, up telephone posts. They are a reminder of a time when you could post a letter almost anywhere within walking distance of you house. Alongside the postbox would often be found the telephone box. People would hear the phone ring and walk to someones house to tell them there was a call for them ... that's because it was rare to get a call and usually it meant BAD NEWS.
