ST7017 : Stalbridge: postbox № DT10 9, Copse House

taken 7 years ago, near to Purse Caundle, Dorset, Great Britain

Stalbridge: postbox № DT10 9, Copse House
Stalbridge: postbox № DT10 9, Copse House
This postbox occupies a borderline position in relation to both gridsquares and counties. It is clasped to a wooden post almost hidden in the hedge which forms the Dorset-Somerset border, and is squeezed into the top-right corner of the gridsquare.

Depending on the exact point of the boundary relative to the hedge, it is possible that every letter posted here crosses the boundary twice before the postman collects it! He does so at 10:45 on weekday mornings and at 9 o'clock on Saturday mornings.
