SY9995 : Corfe Mullen: postbox № BH18 118, Corfe Lodge Road

near to Broadstone, Poole, Great Britain

Corfe Mullen: postbox № BH18 118, Corfe Lodge Road
Corfe Mullen: postbox № BH18 118, Corfe Lodge Road
This bit of Corfe Mullen marks a little postal boundary anomaly. The Roman Road, just to the east, marks the boundary of Corfe Mullen (in East Dorset and mostly the BH21 postcode district) and Broadstone (in Poole and BH18).

However, since this bit of Corfe Mullen is accessible only by crossing Roman Road, it quite logically receives its post via Broadstone.

We thus have the situation that the properties in Corfe Lodge Road pay their council tax to East Dorset but have letters addressed as Broadstone.

The postbox is emptied finally at 5:15pm on weekdays and at 11:45am on Saturdays.
