Missed the Christmas post!
Missed the Christmas post!
Looking down the inside of SZ0899 : West Parley: postbox № BH22 46, Lone Pine Drive, several letters await collection on Saturday, the day after Boxing Day.

The bolt sticking into the box is helping to attach the 'drop box' to the outside - a receptacle where the postman can leave his delivery items, saving a longer walk back to the van.
Drop box
A ‘drop box’ is an item of Royal Mail street furniture. It is a receptacle where the postman can securely store part of his morning round, at a convenient location. Sometimes, the Royal Mail van may drop off the postman with his bike and morning deliveries, saving him carrying a heavier load or frequent returns to the sorting office.
Originally drop boxes were attached to pillar boxes and, therefore, painted red to match. Nowadays, they are separate free-standing boxes – usually close to a postbox – generally painted grey, although red stand-alone boxes are also to be seen.
