A closer look at the slot of ST8718 : Compton Abbas: postbox № SP7 107, East Compton, showing the bristles that have been affixed, to prevent snails from getting in. This practice originated in November 2000 in the West Country, where the problem was particularly prevalent - especially with boxes set into walls with ivy or similar vegetation growing up around them..
