I must admit that it's very nice these days when we come across these instead of the modern glass version. On Thursday while we were out we saw them in two different locations....they just look right..!

Classic British icons, sad that not many more are around. I love seeing pictures of these as one day that is all that will be left of them. Great shot.

Thank you Urko....

Yes it is very sad that there are so few about, in Malta there is a scrap yard that contains thousands of them.....I do so hope they don't destroy them.
I have bought two money boxes, one a letter box and the other a phone box..... I shall take them with me when I move to Spain so that they will be a small reminder of my roots.

Yes it is gorgeous there, I took quite a lot of pictures of the Abbey..... I'll post them after the wedding photos.

From Preston you would probably go on the M65, that goes past Pendle Hill and right past the edge of my town.

I shall miss the beautiful countryside round here, but there are lots of things and people in Spain that I love enough to make up for that.

And no I won't miss the weather at all. :-)))

I wonder if it came from your neighborhood ... .

Yours could be from anywhere, the crown is just the standard one used for all telephone and letter boxes that where made during the rein of Queen Elizabeth 11.
There are still a few about that were made in her fathers rein and of course they have GR instead of ER on them…but there are not many about now!
