Cann: postbox № SP7 3 and phone, Bozley Hill
One of several postboxes in the parish of Cann, which sprawls right across the southern edge of Shaftesbury town. This would have to be considered the 'main' one, being in the hamlet actually called Cann and on the main Blandford road. It is emptied at 5pm on weekdays and at 11:45am on Saturdays.
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.
